On the day John F. Kennedy was assassinated, November 22 1963, Robert Groden turned 18. Kennedy’s death changed his life. In 1975 Robert shocked America as he released the Zapruder film on national television. This home movie of Kennedy’s assassination forced the American Congress to reopen the investigation and turned Robert into America’s most famous JFK conspiracy theorist. But his quest comes at a high price. Far-removed from his family, Robert sits at a small table on Dealey Plaza in Dallas every day, looking out over the spot where Kennedy was assassinated, telling people what he believes happened there.
