Synopsis by Michael Hastings
The title of this hour-long documentary refers to the firefighters who toiled for months in the cleanup and recovery effort at the ruins of the World Trade Center. Retired fireman Mike Lennon worked at the site for weeks before he decided to work out some of his own anxieties and frustrations by interviewing his fellow rescuers as well as the families of firefighters who perished in the terrorist attack. Narrated by journalist Pete Hamill, the film features Irish standards performed by Van Morrison and the Chieftains.
