It is the summer of 1961. John F. Kennedy is in the White House; Alan
Shepherd has just returned from space; and the civil rights movement is
coming to a boil. In New York City, thirty-five year old Marilyn Monroe is
trying to change her career and her life, when she encounters a young
African-American woman with her own ideas about change.
