Neither the Russian couple, r the wife of the aggressor, r the two young traders come to celebrate their first jobs on the floor. An event t worth lingering over? All actions have consequences. And on this occasion, the brutality, indifference or cowardice of those present will signal the beginning of their individual undoing.
