The Boston Marathon is the oldest running marathon in the United States. Because of its notoriety, thousands participate in it every year. In 2013 something happened that would change the marathon forever. Two individuals determined to make a political statement... Chose the marathon as the time and place for their plan. In doing so, they were hoping to break the spirit of the city and instead reignited it in a way that hasn't been seen since 9/11. The bombing claimed the lives of 4 individuals and forever changed the lives of many others (physically and mentally). This story centers on the heroes of that day and on those affected by what happened. An intimate look at the details of that day from an internal perspective. What decisions were made? Why they were made? and how those responsible were brought to justice. That's the ultimate question, though, can there be justice in a situation like this... This will take you through the tragedy and triumph of that day and will remind everyone of the true meaning behind "Boston Strong". Make sure and stay into the credits for some stories from some of those affected by that day. We know the story... Or at least we thought we did until now. This is much more than a movie, it's a timeline of events (including actual footage), that changed a city and a country forever.
To all those injured, to the first responders and medical professionals, and to all members of law enforcement who demonstrated courage, compassion, and dedication throughout the tragic events of April 2013
