THE HAMBURG CELL

SYNOPSIS

The Hamburg Cell is the first major television dramatisation of the September 11 plot. Based on two years of exhaustive research, it tells the story of the students-turned-suicide bombers whose devastating attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon changed the course of the 21st Century.

Written by Ronan Bennett (Fields of Gold, Lucky Break, Face) and Alice Perman, and directed by Antonia Bird (Rehab, Care, Face, Priest), the film charts the extraordinary journey taken by these men, from their initial meetings in Hamburg through to the devastating attacks on the US on September 11.
