Chappaquiddick recounts the tragic events of the 1969 fatal car accident involving US Senator Ted Kennedy and a young, female campaign worker who died at the scene. What happens over the ensuing ten hours before Kennedy actually reported the incident to the authorities, reveals how one of the most powerful and influential political family dynasties in US history orchestrated the facts and the real reason for the death of the campaign worker. Their efforts to control the story in the press, run damage control and preserve the family’s legacy is an extraordinary story of the powerful and the untouchable.
