This documentary highlights the story of Gerard "Biscuits" Baptiste, a young firefighter assigned to FDNY Ladder 9, who made the ultimate sacrifice saving the lives of others at the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001.
In summer 2001, Firefighter Gerard Baptiste of FDNY Ladder Company 9 purchased a battered 1979 Honda motorcycle, model CB750. Baptiste believed that he could restore it to good working order. Following Baptiste’s death in the North Tower on 9/11, the broken-down motorcycle remained at the firehouse until a memorial tribute in Backroads magazine inspired Baptiste’s colleagues to transform the motorcycle into a “bike of healing” known as the Dream Bike. Ten roses painted on the cover of its gas tank symbolize the members of Ladder Company 9 and Engine Company 33 who were killed on 9/11.
