More than 17,000 people were "disappeared" during the Lebanese Civil War. Many of their bodies were never found. To this day, their families do not know what became of their loved ones. ‘That Day in September’ puts a human face on this devastating tragedy with the story of a seamstress and her client, a bride-to-be. The two women bond over conversations of the seamstress’s kidnapped son – but his fate, despite his mother’s hopeful prayers, has already been sealed.
