Narrated by Tom Hanks

“In this short 11 minute documentary narrated by Tom Hanks, director Eddie Rosenstein tells the story of the greatest sea evacuation of people in history after the attack on New York City on September 11, 2001. In less than 9 hours an impromptu armada of private boats, ferries, fishing boats, dinner cruise boats, and government boats came together with no plan or prior experience and evacuated 500,000 people from lower Manhattan to safety. As you listen to the stories, you realize as one captain said, “There’s a little bit of hero in all of us, you just have to look for it, it will come out.”

“A great reminder of what makes America such an incredible country. How lucky we are.”
