In Tehran, twin sisters live as virtual prisoners of their poor father and blind mother, locked behind bars for all of their twelve years. Their father argues that his daughters "are like flowers. They mustn't be exposed to the sun or they will soon fade...". A social worker attempts to persuade him to give them the freedom to explore the world beyond the gates of their home." -- Container

Der Terror-Anschlag auf das World Trade Center in New York am 11. September 2001 sprengte alle Grenzen der Vorstellungskraft. Alain Brigand: "In einem Augenblick wurde Trauer weltumspannend. Um das Echo auf dieses Ereignis auf andere Art als durch diese entsetzlichen Bilder festzuhalten, wurde mir sehr bald klar, dass wir die Pflicht der Reflexion hatten. Diese Reflexion sollte nicht der Gegenwart verhaftet sein, sondern sich ausdrücklich der Zukunft zuwenden. So bat ich elf bekannte Regisseure und Regisseurinnen um einen Beitrag - einen Blick auf ihre eigene Kultur, ihre eigene Erinnerung. Die Vorgabe lautete: "Ein Film, der 11 Minuten, 9 Sekunden und 1 Bild - 11'09''01 - dauert und sich um die Ereignisse des 11. September und ihre Folgen dreht." (Quelle: Umschlag)
