The rebuilding of Ground Zero is one of the most architecturally, politically and emotionally complex urban renewal projects in American history. From the beginning, the effort has been fraught with controversy, delays and politics. The struggle has encompassed eleven years, nineteen government agencies, a dozen projects and over $20 billion. What will emerge in downtown Manhattan will redefine the city and country for generations. The film, directed by Richard Hankin, follows the dramatic rush to complete the memorial in time, and the key players as they prepare to converge on the site for the 10th anniversary.
