I Was There

I Was There Movie Poster

Gus Johnson is a New York City firefighter who panicked and escaped the World Trade Center in 9/11. He barely survived the collapse and instantly became a hero. However, survivor's guilt haunted Gus turning him into a self-loathing alcoholic, which drew away his wife and son.

Years later, Samuel Lyons, a photographer who crossed paths with Gus on 9/11, confronts Gus with a photo that proves Gus was not a hero that morning and blackmails him into telling the truth to his family, which forces Gus into a journey of self-discovery and acceptance.
