Plot Summary: Based on actual events that occurred on September 11, 2001, the film chronicles two Port Authority policemen’s battle for survival underneath the World Trade Center rubble following the terrorist attacks. John McLoughlin (Nicolas Cage) and Will Jimeno (Michael Pena) are among the initial officers dispatched to the scene of disaster after the first tower is hit. The two form a rescue group, gather supplies, and rush to the site. While they’re passing through the underground concourse that connects the two towers, one of the buildings collapses, trapping both of them underneath the wreckage. What follows is an account of their dramatic 24 hour-long ordeal, shifting between their courageous endurance against the odds and their wives’ (Maria Bello and Maggie Gyllenhaal) emotionally exhausting experience of having to watch the rescue efforts unfold on television.
