What distinguishes 'Seven Days in September' are the smaller scale moments that it captures, individual human elements within the broader sweep of events.

It recreates what those days felt like with excruciating precision: the wild panic, the moments of funereal calm, the spontaneous blossoming of solidarity and fellow feeling.
