Synopsis

On the morning of September 11, 2001 McCartney was in a plane on the tarmac, about to leave NYC when the attacks occurred. Grounded, he returned to the city and witnessed first-hand the shock and devastation that overtook New York. Shooting in black-and-white directors Maysles and Kaplan capture McCartney rehearsing with his band for the concert, connecting with New Yorkers on the streets, and behind-the-scenes at interviews with Dan Rather, Howard Stern and others.
