Capturing the raw emotion that gripped our nation following 9/11, The Space Between powerfully defines the experience through the eyes of an unlikely duo, two strangers brought together by tragedy and fate. Montine McLeod (Academy Award-winner Melissa Leo, The Fighter, Frozen River, HBO's Mildred Pierce and Treme) is a gruff, alcoholic, world-weary flight attendant. Omar Hassan (Anthony Keyvan, ABC's Lost, Disney's iCarly) is a prematurely wise, 10-year-old Pakistani-American boy, traveling alone. The two randomly connect amidst the resulting chaos of that 2001 day, stranded by a forced landing in Houston and unable to return home to New York City. Montine intuitively embarks on an unsanctioned cross-country road trip in an effort to help the young Muslim, now unable to reach his father who works in the Tower's top-floor restaurant ... and in the process, discovers her own path to redemption. A moving look at the heartbreak of 9/11 across our nation in the hours and days immediately following the attacks, The Space Between reveals our broken humanity, questions stereotypes and defines the commonalities that exist in all of us.
