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 ...

Counterproductive Docudrama on 9/11 Truth
11 July 2008 | by krice43See all my reviews

A failure artistically and as education.

This docudrama depicts a search for the truth about the events of 9/11. It takes place in 2006, and, apparently, only 3 people in the world are skeptical enough about the 'official story' to decide to investigate it. The main character is a magazine journalist who has a few weeks in which to write an article exposing the truth. This is not helpful to the 9/11 Truth movement, since by 2006 many thousands of people were interested and/or investigating and hundreds of books and DVDs had been published on the topic.

As if that's not bad enough, the acting is pretty bad and the writing is pedestrian.
