Storyline

A psychological suspense thriller about The World Trade Center Survivors' Network and their former President, Tania Head. After meeting Director Angelo J. Guglielmo, Jr., Head commissioned a documentary based on her work with the Survivors' Network. Filming began and the world's most famous 9/11 survivor told her story with spellbinding intensity. There was only one problem: Tania Head was never in the Twin Towers and her epic story of grief was a complete fabrication. Written by Angelo J. Guglielmo, Jr.

Trivia

Tania claimed to have gotten a lawyer and had a judge marry her and Dave posthumously because they had planned to get married on October 11, 2001 and they had already obtained the marriage license. Posthumous marriages are possible in the United States, however, Tania would have had to provide to the court compelling evidence that she and Dave intended to marry before his death. This evidence could be a marriage license obtained before Dave's death, however, since Tania fabricated her story, she could not have had a valid license to wed Dave. Posthumous marriages in the US are not recognized under Federal law. And they can be contested by children, parents or any other interested party of the deceased. See more »

Amazing!
13 July 2014 | by (California) – See all my reviews

This was an amazing, well put together documentary! I have watched it more then once and have recommended it to several friends. What a crazy story, even with reading the title and knowing where its headed it still has a way of surprising you. I found myself starting to believe her, already knowing the truth because how detailed she was. It's also interesting to Google her after you watch it.... It was interesting to hear what she has been up to and finding out that she as of a year ago was working at a law firm but was terminated (according to what I found) after the documentary came out. I definitely recommend this film. I have turned several of my friends onto it that have all enjoyed it.
