Short Film of the Day: Always a Family

Why Watch? Go grab some tissues. No, really. You’ll need them.

StoryCorps is doing an amazing, beautiful, difficult job of finding at least one story for every life lost on September 11, 2001. They’ve recorded family members and friends talking about the loved ones that died that day, and they’ve begun the process of creating animated short films which tell about their lives.

This particular story features a divorced couple who still love each other and a phone call to say goodbye from the 103rd floor of the World Trade Center.

What does it cost? Just 3 minutes of your time.

Check out Always a Family for yourself:
