What's the story of Come From Away?

Based on the inspiring true story, Come from Away is the story of  an isolated community in Gander, Newfoundland coming together to play host to the world.

What started as an average day in a small town turned in to an international sleep-over when 38 planes, carrying thousands of people from across the globe, were diverted to Gander’s air strip on September 11, 2001.

Undaunted by culture clashes and language barriers, the people of Gander cheered the stranded travellers with music, an open bar and the recognition that we’re all part of a global family.
