In 1964, three high school valedictorians reflect on the one recent event none of them will ever forget — the assassination of President Kennedy. In early 2002, a middle school student becomes convinced that Al-Qaida terrorists lurk in the midst of his sleepy small town. And on November 5th, 2008, two young mothers from very different backgrounds consider what Obama’s victory means for the future of their children. By turns poignant and funny, this look back on watershed moments in American history is an honest examination of change’s immense power.
