Storyline

A psychological suspense thriller about The World Trade Center Survivors' Network and their former President, Tania Head. After meeting Director Angelo J. Guglielmo, Jr., Head commissioned a documentary based on her work with the Survivors' Network. Filming began and the world's most famous 9/11 survivor told her story with spellbinding intensity. There was only one problem: Tania Head was never in the Twin Towers and her epic story of grief was a complete fabrication. Written by Angelo J. Guglielmo, Jr.

Trivia

Tanya Head stated that she was always approached by family members of the victims of 9/11 asking her about how their loved one died. Ms. Head stated she didn't want to tell them because "who wants to talk about body parts". Wanting to know the details of the death of a loved one is common in survivor's guilt. See more »

Amazing!
13 July 2014 | by tffnycrockerSee all my reviews

This was an amazing, well put together documentary! I have watched it more then once and have recommended it to several friends. What a crazy story, even with reading the title and knowing where its headed it still has a way of surprising you. I found myself starting to believe her, already knowing the truth because how detailed she was. It's also interesting to Google her after you watch it.... It was interesting to hear what she has been up to and finding out that she as of a year ago was working at a law firm but was terminated (according to what I found) after the documentary came out. I definitely recommend this film. I have turned several of my friends onto it that have all enjoyed it.
