Pas de résumé français disponible

"On the morning of September 11, as a plane hit the second tower of the World Trade Center, US president George W. Bush was reading a story to a classroom of second-graders at Emma E. Booker Elementary School in Sarasota, Florida. For the 16 kids and their teacher, this iconic moment in American history is forever etched in their minds. Now, almost 20 years later, what has become of this classroom of gifted, predominantly African American children? 9/11 Kids catches up with many of those present that fateful day. Many have gone on to thrive, but for some, life has been challenging, marred by petty crime and periodic incarceration. As the film reflects on the poignant theme of race in America, it calls into question what the American Dream means today."
