Old buildings often had two stairs. One ornamental stair that connected all floors at the lobby. All way to the top; dangerously interconnecting every floor to any floor with a fire. They also had a fire stair. In the Burns Building the fires stair also interconnects all the floors;temporally not spatially.In a single day, it is November 22, 1963, 1973 and 1983. Lives are saved. Lives are lost. Love is found. Friends are lost. History in made and unmade.
This might be a better movie than a book. You decide.
