Based on true events, 9/11 tells the story of 5 people trapped in an elevator in the World Trade Center. As the sun rises in NYC on the morning of September 11, 2001, the day seems no different. 

Visit the official 911 movie website for more information.

9/11 opens in theaters on September 8 and has an all star cast including Luis Guzman(The Taking of Pelham 1,2,3), Gina Gershon (Showgirls), Wood Harris (Justified), Jacqueline Bisset (Dancing on the Edge (BBC), Welcome to New York), Olga Fonda (The Vampire Diaries) and Bruce Davison (X-Men).

In the WTC, a billionaire sits in his attorney’s office awaiting a divorce hearing against his wife. In a west side apartment, a bike messenger kisses his 5-year old daughter and sings her “Happy Birthday” before leaving for work. A maintenance man gets dispatched to help a WTC tenant with his lock. In an upper east side apartment, a young model musters the courage to break up with her sugar daddy. As random as random can be, these individuals step into a crowded WTC elevator. 

Wrapped up in their own world, they all ride silently hearing only the sound of the elevator giving notice of each floor. When the elevator stops on the 34th floor, it empties leaving only these five behind. Moments later ... their world changes as the collision of a jet into the North Tower incapacitates the elevator. 

With no understanding of what has happened and is happening around them, these fives are forced to band together and fight against all odds to escape from the impending horrific collapse. During these critical minutes, a story of courage, faith and the will to live unfolds.

My 9/11 Story

I was doing dishes. It was my first day off in 8 days. At the time I worked for a local ambulance company and we were short staffed so I had been working alot. My husband, at the time, yelled to me that I needed to come see the television. A plane had hit a tower in New York. As I held my then 6 month old son, I watched in horror as the day unfolded. Another tower hit, a plane in a field and the Pentagon. As I watched the towers fall, my heart fell and broke into a million pieces.
I lost 2 people close to me that day. Both worked for the City of New York for the Fire Department.
I desperately wanted to donate my time to search and recovery but my company wouldn't let me and neither would my body being so close post partum. The only thing I could do was donate blood.
 A few months later I was in Boston and I overheard someone say that America deserved it. The dead people deserved it. And I lost it. I vented to that insensitive human and almost got arrested. I was so teary and angry something that I usually am not.
It took me a long time to find peace. But I have found it.
Now, I make sure my children know about that horrid time in American history. I went over it with my 12 yo daughter a few months ago. They do not teach this in school. That is a total shame, That time frame is an important part of American history that we can not forget.
