It’s 1995, Los Angeles, and 32-year-old Marilyn Monroe impersonator, Kelly Jean Cavanaugh values her happily-ever-after monogamous marriage above all else. She and her actor husband, Brad, make ends meet with the help of Kelly’s impersonating side-job based in Southern California. Though Kelly (as Marilyn) is worshipped and adored at cocktail parties and conventions from Hollywood to San Diego and Palm Springs, her husband’s affection and attention have waned. After their seven years together Brad wants a divorce.
Devastated, Kelly persuades Brad to go to couple’s counseling — again. Meanwhile, she plots to get even the only way she knows how—by using Marilyn’s feminine wiles to embark on an illicit affair and soothe her self-esteem. Her plan backfires when she falls for her paramour.
As Kelly’s coming apart over her crumbling marriage and her star-crossed love affair, the spirit of Marilyn unexpectedly shows up, infiltrating Kelly’s psyche in dreams, voices in her head, and even writings in her journal. Kelly doesn’t believe in channeling or spirit guides, and there’s only so much a spirit guide can do when a person isn’t willing to receive input. Can Marilyn save Kelly from herself?
Join the impetuous Kelly Jean Cavanaugh as she recounts how Hollywood’s forever-reigning goddess of love helped her find her way to recovery, post-divorce and beyond.
