Revisiting June 4, 1968, the night RFK was gunned down at the Ambassador Hotel; ‘Bobby’ follows 22 individuals who are all at the hotel for different purposes. Each shares a common thread of anticipating Kennedy’s arrival at the primary election night party. These fictionalized characters represent a cross-section of America – a hotel manager advocating for social justice, a fading nightclub star battling alcoholism, campaign workers high on the promise of a visionary politician, a doorman nostalgic for his retired post, a young woman marrying her boyfriend’s brother so he can avoid going to Vietnam, and a kitchen staff of minorities working through racism and exploitation.
