Drama, Thriller


Jim Garrison, a New Orleans’s District Attorney, just can’t believe the Warren Commission official conclusion on the death of President Kennedy is accurate. Determined to prove them wrong, Garrison stakes everything to find the truth. He encounters a high-level Pentagon official who confirms to him that there was a conspiracy, but Garrison’s over-the-top antics interfere with his credibility, leaving him open for ridicule. However, as more and more proof comes to light of a possible conspiracy and cover-up, the more people take note. Garrison never quite achieves his goal of learning the truth, but his investigation gives the world many things to ponder.
