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.

Where were you on September 11, 2001?
Everyone has a memory or story from 9/11. Mine was that I was simply in a state of confusion, a couple states away. I was in 7th grade science class when my teacher briefed us on what had happened. He told us that he hoped this would be the biggest tragic event we would ever experience. The day ended up being very odd and all the teachers left their TV news running during class. I am fortunate not to have known anyone directly impacted. However, I knew it was so horrendous and shocking that I taped all the radio news interruptions for over a month after it happened.
