Tania Head's 9/11 tale of escape from the south tower was brave and astounding, and the loss of her husband in the north tower was heart-breaking. Following the tragedy, she forged friendships with fellow survivors and her work resulted in her becoming president of the influential World Trade Center Survivors’ Network. However, Tania Head was not in the Twin Towers on September 11, 2001: she wasn't even in the country and her entire story was fabricated.

This documentary follows Tania's rise to national prominence, the unravelling of her story and the reactions from her closest colleagues.
