The events of September Eleventh, 2001, shook America and they shook the world. Nearly 3,000 people died at the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and United Airlines Flight 93 which crashed in Pennsylvania. The day has divided our history into pre-9/11 and post-9/11 worlds. In the aftermath of the attacks, some family members who lost loved ones began to ask questions, and pressed for an investigation into how the attacks could have happened. The Family Steering Committee for the 9/11 Independent Commission was formed and, after over a year of pressure, the administration of President George W. Bush established the 9/11 Commission.

Unanswered Questions examines the exemplary citizen advocacy of those who survived, and why these families unanswered questions still matter.
