This is the incredible story of the struggle to open an investigation of the events of 9/11. Most people are unaware that the formation of the 9/11 Commission was strongly opposed by the Bush administration. It was only due to pressure from the 9/11 families, led by a particular twelve calling themselves The Family Steering Committee, that, fourteen months after the attacks, the first hearings began.
Out of this tenacious effort emerged the notoriety of "The Jersey Girls" Lorie Van Auken, Mindy Kleinberg, Patty Casazza, and Kristen Breitweiser, four women who lost their husbands on 9/11 and went on to force the Bush administration to open an investigation of the event that took their husbands from them and changed their lives forever. It is only because they simply refused to quit that we know what we know today. Yet the film is a powerful argument for why 9/11 needs still further investigation. Using Paul Thompson’s definitive Complete 9/11 Timeline, the filmmakers stitch together rare, overlooked news clips, buried stories, and government press conferences, revealing a pattern of official lies, deception, and spin.
There is a wide range of theories as to what actually happened on 9/11. This film brings us to no one conclusion but forcefully raises the many important questions that have yet to be answered satisfactorily.
