Summary *Adult themes*Nearly 3000 families lost a loved one on September 11, 2001 when terrorists flew two jets into the twin towers in New York. The towers collapsed so violently that only 300 bodies were recovered.But for some families there is another legacy - the voices and recorded messages of their sons, daughters, fathers and siblings left on phones as they prepared to meet their tragic fate. Families have lived with these final words since that fateful day. Many of the calls have never been heard in public before.But now, with full consent from the relatives, who now feel ready to talk about them, these recordings shed light on what actually happened inside the towers.But they also reveal something more profound - about the choices people make in their final moments; who to turn to and what to say.PRODUCTION DETAILS:Directed by James Kent
