Based on actual events and voicemail messages, 9/11 tells the story of five people trapped in an elevator in the World Trade Center’s North Tower on September 11th, 2001. Having no comprehension of what has happened outside, these strangers work together and never give up hope as they try to escape before the unthinkable happens.
