Thousand of strangers came together as a team.

Many personal accounts have risen from the ashes of the World Trade Center Towers, but this story is unlike any that have preceded it. ANSWERING THE CALL is the heartfelt chronicle about the thousands of emergency personnel, on and off-duty, who responded to this nation's worst disaster. The brave men and women in uniform, as well as relief workers and individual citizens, worked with unprecedented commitment and compassion in the face of the devastating and tragic event of 9/11/01. ANSWERING THE CALL includes never before seen footage by Lou Angeli, a veteran volunteer firefighter and filmmaker, who was himself part of the volunteer effort.

ANSWERING THE CALL depicts the surreal sites and sounds of the now sacred ground that was once the World Trade Center complex - a site now known throughout the world as Ground Zero...

This is their story!
