Parkland presents the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, one of the most famous events of the 20th Century, from the perspective of a handful of ordinary individuals. Young, inexperienced doctor Jim Carrico (Zac Efron) is traumatized when the President is brought to his hospital and tries in vain to save him with the help of E.R nurse Doris Nelson (Marcia Gay Harden). Shop owner and amateur photographer Abraham Zapruder (Paul Giamatti) finds his world turned upside down when he happens to record footage of the fatal moment and has to hand it over to Secret Service agent Forrest Sorrels (Billy Bob Thornton). Meanwhile, Robert Oswald (James Badge Dale) hears over the radio that his brother Lee Harvey has committed the crime of the century, but decides that he cannot abandon him.
