As we delve into the world of each character, we witness the terror, but also the hope, tenderness, acts of bravery and compassion, and the power of the human spirit. This film is dedicated in loving memory to all those who lost their lives as a result of the September 11 attacks, as well as the brave men and women who responded to the emergency. They will never be forgotten. Written by Forget Me Not Productions

Goofs

The World Trade Center Marriott did not have a high view into the Towers, as depicted. Therefore, the scene is unlikely where the woman looks out and watches the man jump, seemingly right across from her. See more »

Moving revisit by a diverse ensemble
7 August 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

8:46 delivered on all fronts, beginning with production quality. First, I must credit the director... In dealing with a historical event that we are very much familiar with - halfway through, I forgot I was watching a film about 9/11, more interested in the lives and arc of each character, which I think was the point. I also appreciate that this film didn't exploit or take stance on any political aspect regarding 9/11, rather it relied on the moving performances of relatable actors like Jody Flynn, Mike Digiacinto and Shelly Shenoy. Laurie Dawn (The Adjustment Bureau, Boardwalk Empire) delivers a chilling, heart-wrenching moment as a mother who loses her son, watching on real time TV. Surprising bits of humor and coy in the days leading up to the attack also helped me lose myself in the world of these characters, truly interested in what was going to happen in their stories, until tragedy struck. I laughed, cried and was thoroughly moved by this surprising gem of an independent film.
