Gus Johnson (James A. Lee) is a New York City firefighter who barely survived the collapse of the world trade center towers on 9/11 and instantly became a hero. However, survivor's guilt haunted Gus and he turned into a self loathing alcoholic, which drew away his wife and son (Sebastián Zurita). Years later, Samuel Lyons (Carl Ford), a photographer who crossed paths with Gus on 9/11 confronts Gus with a compromising photo he took that morning and blackmails him into telling the truth to his family, forcing him into a journey of self discovery and acceptance.
