Summary The 1968 assassination of Robert F. Kennedy in a Los Angeles hotel kitchen. We see Kennedy's acceptance speech after winning the California Democratic presidential primary, his death at the hands of gunman Sirhan Sirhan, and the chaos and despair that ensued. The people at the hotel don't know what is coming. Our grief at hearing RFK's own words, so eloquent, so hopeful and inspiring. Watch the horrible events unfold and wonder what might have been. Bobby was the man whom many thought would defeat Richard Nixon in the '68 general election. Centers around 22 people who were guests, staff, campaign workers, and reporters who were at the Ambassador Hotel on that June day. Many issues are addressed, including, the Vietnam war, drugs, alcoholism, voting irregularities, adultery, racism, immigration, and communism.
Audience MPAA rating: R; language, drug content and a scene of violence.
