Five individuals – a billionaire businessman; his estranged wife; a bike messenger; a young executive; and a building maintenance worker – find themselves trapped in an elevator in the North Tower of the World Trade Center on the morning of September 11, 2001. After an unknown event jolts their elevator car to a stop, the story unfolds as the group slowly learns what is happening in the outside world. Their lone contact is with the building’s elevator systems operator, who works to guide them, via intercom, as they attempt to escape to safety. This gripping story of hope, faith, and perseverance showcases the light of the human spirit in the darkest of hours.
