Based on the book The Day The World Came To Town, Diverted takes place in Gander, Newfoundland, Canada after the Twin Towers were hit on September 11, 2001. When the terrorist attack occurred, 38 planes that were supposed to land in New York City were instead diverted to the airport in this small city of 9,000. As it more or less doubled in size, 7,000 people waited in Gander for four days until the American airspace opened up again. A solemn moment in modern American history, watch how this group of people dealt with the event that changes lives.
