Overview

WORLD PREMIERE
In March 1965, Bobby Kennedy became the first person to summit Mount Kennedy. The peak is located in Canada’s Yukon Territory; the Canadian prime minister named it in honor of John F. Kennedy in the wake of the U.S. president’s assassination. Accompanying Bobby was Jim Whittaker, the mountaineering icon who was the first American to summit Mt. Everest. Fifty years later, Bobby’s son and Jim’s sons honor that historic ascent, and the close friendship that evolved between their families, with their own summit attempt.
