Filmmaker Penny Little examines the potentially devastating effects of debris inhaled by survivors and rescue workers involved in the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center in this incendiary documentary that directly challenges the findings made by the Environmental Protection Agency. Shortly after the dust from the 9/11 attacks settled, EPA Administrator Christine Todd Whitman made the reassuring announcement that the air in New York City was safe to breathe. Unfortunately at the time Whitman didn't have the information needed to support those assurances, and the White House had allegedly already moved to quell public concerns over the incident by using the Council on Environmental Quality to manipulate the statements being made by the EPA. According to Little, the EPA put the public at risk by neglecting their responsibilities and leaving the problem to the city - their belated efforts to do an about face by initiating a voluntary clean-up crew in May of 2002 coming too-little-too-late. We may never understand the true extent of the pollution that was released into the air when the Twin Towers fell, though with this film Little poses that may have been part of the plan all along.
