On September 11, 2001 director Dan Oki was living in New York and witnessed the terrorist attack and its consequences firsthand. In this film, he takes his documentary footage from that fateful day and puts it in the context of a feature film. A theatre troupe from Croatia travels to New York on September 10, 2001. The troupe is a diverse group made up of a young married couple and their son, two girls, and a young man. They are welcomed by their producer, a New Yorker of Croatian descent, whose husband works at the World Trade Centre. Suddenly, without warning, the troupe finds itself in the middle of the destruction of September 11. The relationships between the characters come under pressure and begin to change as a reaction to the sheer force of the events unfolding all around them.
