Highlights include, haunting audio letters from a soldier in the foxholes of Vietnam, the surprising tale of Liberace and the Trinidad Tripoli Steel Band, the voices and stories of Mohawk iron workers at the World Trade Center, and a 1977 home recording made by Francis Ford Coppola and his five-year old daughter Sofia.
