On December 8, 1980—a date with destiny that will forever be etched on the tragic history of music—Mark David Chapman (Jared Leto) shot John Lennon five times outside The Dakota, the New York apartment Lennon shared with wife Yoko Ono. Why did he do it? What compelled this apparently normal married man to assassinate a music legend and icon of the '60s peace and love movement? Writer/director J.P. Schaefer delves into Chapman's deteriorating mental state in the weekend leading up to the inevitable tragedy. Did his attachment to the classic novel The Catcher in the Rye finally cause him to lose his grip on reality and carry out the infamous murder? Lindsay Lohan co-stars.
