An attorney learns a lesson in empathy when he is faced with the near-impossible task of determining how to compensate families who suffered incalculable losses as a result of the September 11th attacks in 2001. Based on true events.
The really sad part that may not be covered in this movie is many of the first responders (firemen, police, EMTs, construction workers, etc.) who developed lung Cancer from being in proximity of the fallen towers and its wreckage, they and their families were denied medical benefits & care once the dust settled, literally and metaphorically. “They knew the risks” was the excuse, but there is no difference between running into a burning house to save a person vs. responding to a high-rise collapse caused by the worst terrorist attack in U.S. history.
Starring Michael Keaton, Stanley Tucci, Amy Ryan. Based on true events. Watch WORTH, on Netflix September 3.
