Candy Factory Films has secured distribution rights to the 9/11 film September Morning and has slated a limited theatrical and day-and-date release to coincide with the 16th anniversary of the terrorist attacks. From first-time director Ryan Frost, the pic is set in the hours following the tragic events of 9/11 and follows five college freshmen whose youth has been brutally severed by a national tragedy. The emotional and intellectual aftermath, for these five as well as our nation, raises more questions than it answers. Patrick Cage II, Katherine C. Hughes, Troy Doherty, Michael Grant, Taylor Rose, Michael Liu and Max Gail co-star. Frost wrote the screenplay and produced the project along with Orestes Arcuni, William S. Goldstein, Stephen Gibler. Richard P. Forman served as exec producer.
