The accident results in the death of passenger Mary Jo Kopechne, a 28-year-old campaign strategist who worked for Kennedy. The ongoing investigation into the mysterious and scandalous events forever alters his political legacy - and ultimately changes the course of presidential history. The Senator is an enthralling tale of political zeitgeist and will ensure this chapter won’t just be left to the history books.
