Disclosure: I received 9/11 Movie samples to facilitate this post. All opinions are my own.
On September 11, 2001 I watched along with the world in horror from my home, as the events in NY unfolded. For me it added an unfortunate element of terror as in less then one month I would be taking a Trans Atlantic flight to go on vacation. With the uncertainty still in the air, there was still a lot of looking over my shoulder to make sure that nothing was going down on the plane.

In the World Trade Center, 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 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 World Trade Center 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.
