RFK is a 2002 American television film directed by Robert Dornhelm. It takes place through the eyes of Robert F. Kennedy after his brother John F. Kennedy's assassination in 1963. As he lives through the loss, he starts to identify himself as a political figure, not just the former President's brother. He makes it official with a Presidential bid in 1968 to what he says was to "save the Democratic Party." During his campaign, in which the American people showed great support for him, RFK was shot and killed by Sirhan Sirhan.

The film was shot in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada.[1]
