Goes inside the rebuilding site at Ground Zero to find out what it really takes to complete this historic effort. The program focuses on how the neighborhoods surrounding Ground Zero have been impacted by the attacks and how the rebuilding efforts have helped their communities begin to heal. Residents, business owners, and landlords discuss the physical, emotional, and financial trials they faced after their neighborhoods were destroyed. Hope is restored through the replanting of the survivor tree, the only tree to withstand the collapse of the towers, at the memorial plaza.
