President John F. Kennedy speaks at a Democratic fundraiser in Miami. The segment begins with a speech by Florida Representative Dante Fascell.

Afterward, he quickly focuses on the Space Program and the positive impact it will have on Florida's educational institutions, technological industries, and economy. He mentions the Alliance for Progress program and commends Senator Smathers for his intuitive concern for Latin America in the 1950s. The majority of Kennedy's speech is dedicated to America's role as guardian of freedom and democracy. The film ends with several silent clips of fundraiser attendees and the guests of honor.
