What is Come From Away about?
Come From Away is a moving story set in the days following the aftermath of the 9/11 terror attacks. The show captures the true events that occurred when the US closed the air space and many planes were diverted to a small town called Gander, Newfoundland. The tale tells us of what happens when these planes were unexpectedly diverted and nearly 7000 passengers needed to be taken in. Witness how the community pulled together to accommodate them and what happened during this horrendous real-life event.
