On November 22, 1963, America lost a president... and a generation lost its innocence. Michelle Pfeiffer is superb in this thoroughly captivating film about an interracial friendship set against the backdrop of a nation both divided by prejudiced and united by sorrow. Dallas housewife Lurene Hallet (Pfeiffer) feels such a strong personal connection to her idol Jackie Kennedy, that when JFK is assassinated, she defies her husband and takes an eastbound bus, determined 'to be there for Jackie' at the funeral. On board she meets a mysterious black man travelling with a sad, little girl. But when Lurene realises that he's given her a false name, she fears she's uncovered a kidnapping plot! As a result of her well-intentioned meddling, the trio end up on the run from the police and, ultimately, on the road to a deep friendship that defies racial boundaries and changes each of them forever.
