Di questo giovane presidente statunitense, ucciso a Dallas nel novembre del 1963, sappiamo quasi tutto sulla vita privata, la storia di una saga familiare irlandese che comincia con il pragmatismo del padre e la complessità e contraddizione della politica che ha bisogno di soldi e consensi per affermarsi in un sistema democratico. Ma, a 100 anni dalla nascita di John F. Kennedy, resta aperto il mistero sulla sua morte violenta, al centro di un film di Oliver Stone che ha contribuito a smuovere le acque e a non far rimuovere il caso.

Ora, il nuovo inquilino della Casa Bianca  annuncia la desecreatzione delle notizie di una vicenda che resta un mito del nostro immaginario collettivo popolato da tante storie interrotte e che chiedono un senso.
