Synopsis: Man On Wire relates the true story of Philippe Petit's famous high-wire walk between the World Trade Center's twin towers on August 7th, 1974. His awe-inspiring feat turned him into a media sensation. Petit's adventure started at a young age, when he began studying magic tricks and performed on the city streets to entertain tourists. At sixteen, he discovered his passion for tightrope walking and trained in the art for a year. One day, while waiting in a dentist's office in Paris, Petit came across an article about the project plan for New York's twin towers along with a graphical illustration of the buildings. He suddenly knew that he had to conquer them. The film follows his story and explores his motivation and ambition to fulfil his dream of walking across the towers.
