Storyline

An investigation of the 9/11 events by a Russian-American journalist and a father of a 9/11 victim implicates the US government in the attacks. Alex Prokop, a successful journalist, receives a rare 9/11 video tape revealing new information about the attack. The footage was sent by Paul Cooper, a driven researcher, whose daughter died on 9/11. Sensing a good story, Prokop travels with Cooper to New York and Washington, DC, where they uncover suppressed information implicating the US Government in the attacks. As Cooper introduces Prokop to key eye-witnesses, the facade of the "official story" begins to crumble. Prokop hears accounts of underground explosions in the Twin Towers moments before their collapse and discovers that the firm providing WTC security was run by the President's brother. We follow Alex and Cooper as they investigate the inexplicable collapse of the 47-story WTC Building Seven, disprove the implausible airliner "attack" on the Pentagon, and uncover the illegal ...

An alternative look at the political version of 9/11.
9 February 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

an excellent dramatic investigation of one of the most horrific and avoidable tragic incidents of modern times.The movie asks the most basic questions not covered by the press or official report.Why did the building collapse so rapidly and in such a controlled manner into their own footprint? Even the one not hit by an airplane? Why did the pentagon suffer so little damage after an entire 747 plunged into it? Why is there so little wreckage or bodies recovered? This is a well acted, terse and no nonsense directed film that belies its meager budget. A dedicated group of professionals must have been behind this film.Go see it. Tell your friends to see it and remember that most official versions of political reality rarely are any better than the worst conspiracy theory.
