Days after 9/11, Joan, a New York City editor, is asking the same question Americans are asking everywhere: "what can I possibly do?" Then, she meets Nick, an FDNY captain who lost most of his men in the attack. He needs someone with the tools to help him craft the eulogies. The afternoon meeting turns to evening, as Nick and Joan recall these ordinary guys: their humor, their faults, their passions. In the process, they discover the possibilities of friendship, their shared love for the unconquerable spirit of the city, and of course, the tango.
