This documentary was filmed by two brothers who set out to film FDNY doing their everyday job.
It was filmed in the weeks running up to 9/11, and fate has it that they were working with FDNY that day, resulting in some amazing footage.
It starts at the training school where the find a rookie firefighter which the documentary will centre on. It shows him passing out and joining his first crew. The first half of the film gives us a glimpse into life of a firefighter in a big city.
The second part of the film starts with the rookies crew attending an everyday call out on the morning of 9/11. Only a few blocks away from the twin towers they get footage of the first aircraft striking the towers, and are one of the first crews to attend.
The documentary shows footage from withing the towers and on street level. It comes with narration from people who were there on the day and gives a very personal look into these global events.
