'Always a Family' Remembers a Father's Last Phone Call on 9/11

By Kasia Cieplak-Mayr von Baldegg

StoryCorps records true stories as told by real people and then brings them to life with animation. Always a Family is the heartbreaking story of a father who called his family on the morning of September 11 from the 103rd floor of the North Tower to say goodbye. 

Ten years later, Monique Ferrer remembers her ex-husband Michael Trinidad, in this short animation directed by the Rauch Brothers.

Watch She Was the One, another moving film from StoryCorps' 9/11 Series.
