SYNOPSIS: And the Giants Fell examines the events leading up to the September 11th tragedy and our reaction to the events. Through four sections, we examine the thoughts and reactions of the participants and victims of the historic event. In the first section, And the Giants Fell, we examine two families and how their lives were touched by this tragic event. In the second section, Reason, we examine how this event affected a woman who has lost her spouse. In the third section, Broken, the ten commandments are used as a template to show how this unexpected tragedy deprived many of its victims the chance of repentance. The final section, From Fear to Hope, shows how this event brought four individuals from the darkness of fear to the light of hope.

"The emotional perspective inspired by Todd that "we" and "them" could share feelings and hopes, is adeptly presented in And the Giants Fell."

"The dark stage and the low glow of intermittent flashlights created amazing intensity from the beginning. Mr. Ford did a formidable job molding such a complex and emotional topic into a work all ages can understand and appreciate."
