Filmmakers Stephen Tringali and Maria Bissell are proud to present Corridor Four, the story of K9 Unit Officer Isaac Ho’opi’I, a man praised for his heroic actions at The Pentagon on 9/11, and the post-traumatic stress disorder he experienced immediately afterward. With over 110 hours of footage and 28 interviews over 5 states, the story of a man who sacrificed all he had can finally be told.
Isaac Ho’opi’i is a nationally recognized K9 Unit Officer, responsible for saving many people from the Pentagon during the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001. Countless articles were written about his heroism following 9/11. He was photographed by Richard Avedon for a spread in USA Today. He appeared on NBC’s Today show. And he ran the Olympic Torch on its way to Salt Lake City for the 2002 Winter Olympics.
This, however, is only a small slice of Isaac’s story. As close friends of the Ho’opi’i family, however, we have known that his biggest struggle came before the news took notice and that his struggle continues to this day.
Wife, mother, grandma, blogger, all wrapped into one person, although it does not define her these are roles that are important to her. From empty nesters to living with our oldest and 2 grandchildren while our house is rebuilt after a house fire in 10/2018 my life is something new each day.
