For thirty years now, the case of M.M. has left Jack Clemmons without any rest! On the night of the 5th of August 1962 his telephone rang at the police headquarters in Los Angeles; Marilyn Monroe was found dead in her Brentwood home. As a senior police officer, he was the first to be at the scene of the crime and immediately realized something was wrong! The clues were puzzling, raising questions that seemed to be unsolvable. Contrary to the official version that Marilyn had killed herself with an overdose, he was convinced it was murder – a conviction which cost him his job.

Now, thirty years later, he takes us back to the night of the death and into the core of his investigation. In searching for clues through drama and dance, director Jana Pulkrabek and choreographer Yaroslav Ivanenko have once more rolled open the circumstances surrounding Marilyn’s mysterious death. Could a woman be suicidal who worked so hard at eradicating her inimical blonde image and solidly pursued her future plans? Or is her death one of the greatest unsolved murder cases in the criminal history of America? Was Marilyn through her private relationships to Robert and John F. Kennedy a target of a plot, of an unparalleled cover-up?
