This moving documentary looks back on the remarkable life of John Fitzgerald Kennedy, and combines the tragedy of his untimely death with the remembrances of those who knew him best, and those who knew him not at all. James Earl Jones reviews the brief life of JFK. His triumphs. His failures. His inspiration and contribution to our history. The story is told through previously unseen and rare video and home movies, and by many people who were there, ordinary people. The story is built around the exclusive historic videotape from WFAA, the Dallas station whose studios are located so near the infamous "grassy knoll" where the President was shot.
We see the events as they happened, from JFK's arrival in Dallas to his funeral in Washington four days later. Woven throughout the historic footage are the recollections of Gerald Ford, Coreeta King, Tip O'Neill, Peter, Paul and Mary, Isaac Stern, Arthur Schlesinger Jr., Ted Kennedy and others. All remembering a man who had touched them. John F. Kennedy, one of America's most loved and respected Presidents, provided us with hope and a dream of something better.
