Incet incet oamenii au inceput sa-si scoata noroaiele din case si sa mai repare ce se mai putea repara la casele lor sau ce a mai ramas din acestea. Dincolo de podul rupt de apa, eliberat din prinsoarea trupurilor de copaci navaliti peste oameni, lacrimile stau in loc. Localnicii si-au vazut vecinii luati de vartej cu tot cu casa. Rabufnirea paraului nu le-a luat insa oamenilor ce a mai de pret bogatie: puterea de munca. Cei care au supravietuit dezastrului rememoreaza acum clipele de cosmar traite iar in urma lor au ramas familiile indurate.
Tirlisua was a quiet village in the heart of the mountains where people lived their lives peacefully. One night, the village was taken over by the waters, at the beginning of the month July and the people that live there lost all their life savings. All they had left after this tragedy took place were clothes they were wearing and their hope. Slowly, they started to take out the mud out of their houses and to repair what could be repaired or what was left of their homes. Beyond the bridge that had been broken by the waters, freed now by the cruel embrace of the trees that had fallen, the tears run dry. The villagers have seen their neighbors taken by the waters along with their houses. But the outburst of the river couldn’t take from them the biggest asset a man can have: the power to work. The ones that survived the disaster remember now the moments of nightmare they have lived.
