Marilyn Monroe is perhaps the biggest icon in the history of cinema. Not only was she exquisitely beautiful, she had the charm to steal the hearts of a US President, a baseball hero, one of the greatest writers of her time ... and, well,  an entire nation. What would spending a week with her really be like?

The most famous movie star in the world, Marilyn Monroe, arrives in London for a film shoot and soon captivates everyone on set, in spite of her erratic and disruptive behaviour. Colin, an aspiring director, makes a grave mistake, like so many others had done before him: he falls madly in love.
