Six Seconds presents the events surrounding the John F. Kennedy assassination through the vortex of the women caught in its awful grip: Lady Bird Johnson, Jackie Kennedy, Nellie Connally, and Marina Oswald. These women are not only wives, but mothers, and each has a unique perspective and reaction to the tragedy that occurred in Dealey Plaza.
