British film director Antonia Bird offers a chilling examination of the roots of extremism with this intensely-researched dramatization of the events leading up to the tragedy of September 11, 2001. Ziad Jarrah was perhaps the most secular and reluctant member of the Al Qaeda cell that would forever change the way the world views terrorism. In this film, viewers are invited to follow along with every history-making step as Jarrah and his fanatical group of religious extremists prepares to overtake United Flight 93, and strike terror into the hearts of those who would dare oppose their radical views.
