Paul McCartney happened to be in New York City on September 11, 2001, when terrorists attacked the World Trade Center. In response, the former Beatle set about organizing a huge benefit concert intended to raise the spirits of New Yorkers and American citizens, memorialize those who'd lost their lives in the attacks or in their aftermath and embrace their families with moments of emotional relief, and to honor the men and women who were working at Ground Zero. Filmmakers Albert Maysles and Bradley Kaplan chronicled the organization of the concert, documented the performance, and followed McCartney as he walked and drove through New York City, encountering people from all walks of life, exchanging words of cheer and support with them, and signing autographs.
