they were sleeping, it was at night

In 1990 a meteorite fell through the roof of a house in a small town on the Dutch German border. In a short travelogue film the camera presents the roaming eye of the artist/investigator trying to establish where this happened by asking people about it in shops and on the street. 

Becoming increasingly lost and sent in many wrong directions, a sinister tone affects recognition of the town and the intentions of its people. At heart its a travelogue, wandering around a town investigating how a story spreads through a population, how an event becomes folklore and is outsourced into the internet, and how conversation can be a site for revealing social vectors.
