Glenn Holsten's Saint of 9/11 documents the life of Franciscan monk Mychal Judge, who died during the attack on the World Trade Center. This man of the cloth led a full and varied life that involved him battling alcoholism, ministering to the first wave of AIDS victims in the '80s (Holsten himself was homosexual), and acting as a fire department chaplain in New York City. Narrarated by Sir Ian McKellen, the film interviews many people who witnessed Holsten's various selfless acts.
