Every family has them. But no family has built higher walls around their secrets than the Kennedys, who fend off relentless attacks from the media and the tabloids to protect the family's reputation and ambitions. Their commitment to their image is so ingrained that it transcends PR and strikes deep with the Kennedy clan itself - where secrets are kept even between family members, and threats to the status quo can lead to excommunication and worse.

John Kennedy Jr has it all: wealth, looks, an easy charm. More than any Kennedy of his generation, he seems to wear the crown lightly - George Clooney with a political pedigree. But while he appears carefree and light-hearted in public, he always works from a carefully-written script - one that was started virtually the moment he was born. No matter how he might try to deviate from it, in the end, he cannot escape the role that destiny and America have chosen for him to play.
