From executive producer Steven Spielberg, comes ‘Freedom Rising, showcasing the men and women determined to rebuild and restore a sacred site and construct the new, 104-story One World Trade Center. Discover the story of the heroic quest of ordinary people - engineers, construction workers, city planners, and architects - on an extraordinary journey of passion and purpose. From the iron workers who lost brothers and friends to the architect who dreams of a new dawn for New York City and the family members who seek closure and solace, ‘Rising' sees real people facing the highest stakes in their professional lives - to meet their construction deadline and to do honor to the victims and their families. With emotional precision, incredible access and deft storytelling, ‘Freedom Rising' links workers, surviving family members, elected officials and first responders, as they share a bond and a compelling purpose to see the greatest city on earth once again rise from the ashes.
