The events surrounding President John F. Kennedy's assassination are explored from multiple perspectives in this historic drama based on Vincent Bugliosi's book Four Days in November. The moment those shots echoed through the streets of Dallas, Texas on November 22, 1963, the entire city erupted into chaos. The leader of the free world was dead, and his security team was scrambling for clues. An amateur film had captured the tragedy in vivid detail, but the gunman had slipped through the FBI's grasp. Meanwhile, the doctors and nurses at Dallas' Parkland Hospital found themselves in the eye of the storm, and Vice President Lyndon Johnson was thrust into the role of Commander in Chief. In this film, we witness the events of that fateful day from the perspectives of the people who were there to witness one of the most disputed events in history firsthand. Zac Efron, Paul Giamatti, Billy Bob Thornton, Jacki Weaver, and Jeremy Strong star.
