It is 1962 and Marilyn Monroe is in the midst of a photo shoot. Divorced for the third time, living alone, frustrated by Hollywood and tired of the label “sex symbol,” Marilyn longs to be respected for her talent, and loved for who she really is, rather than the character she has created for the silver screen. She wonders what it would be like to do it all over again.
