I remember the events of 9/11 like it was yesterday. I was sitting in my English class and the principal interrupted our class to bring us the news and pull a few students out of the classroom, after that all I remember is watching the tv as the events unfolded. We were all released from school early and able to go home to our families, the impact of the day will forever be with me. I am humbled by the many people who risked their lives to save those around them and still do to this day.
This awe-inspiring film starring Charlie Sheen and Whoopi Goldberg titled 9/11, is based on the original play, The Elevator, that centers on the events of September 11, 2001. No matter who you are or where you were, that moment and the aftermath is indelibly etched in everyone’s mind.
The film 9/11 is based on a true story and chronicles the lives of five average, everyday people who find themselves trapped in an elevator during the events of 9/11 in the World Trade Center.

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.
