In 1950, a young, beautiful Polish refugee arrives in Hyannisport, Massachusetts, to work as a maid for one of the wealthiest families in America. Alicia is dazzled by the large, charismatic family -- in particular the oldest son, Jack, a rising politician. The pair is soon engaged, but Jack's father forbids the marriage. The Summer I Met Jack is based on the real life of Alicia Corning Clark, who J. Edgar Hoover insisted was paid by the Kennedys to keep quiet about her romance with JFK and a baby they may have had together.
