    The resulting film is a record of indefatigably focused activity that began with the simple goal of rescue but evolved into a therapeutic tool for resolution and acceptance.
  2. The film is narrated by Kathleen Turner in her inimitable husky style, with the actress receiving a final credit as one of the volunteers at ground zero.

    For those of who worked the tragedy in lower Manhattan, this film serves as a healing tool at a time when Americans need it most. I'm looking forward to DVD distribution. Expand

    This is an incredibly poignant film that deals with what really occured at Ground Zero -- America brought together in a way that is of social and historical significance. Expand

    I regret that this film had only a short run during the 4th anniversary of the attack on America. The Call is the only 9/11 documentary to date that does not dwell on death and destruction...but rather how Americans came together during the nation's darkest moment. A truly inspiring film that I plan to hand down to my granmdchildren. Expand
