Marilyn Monroe died just after midnight on August 5th, 1962; former Little League champion Kimitake "Clyde" Koba was born on the same day, at the same time. As Clyde struggles to escape the ghost of his brother and his alcoholic father and stumbles through his first love, he finds strength in the belief that he is the reincarnation of Monroe. Raphael Dweck, born on Yom Kippur, teen genius and artist par-excellence, sex addict and kleptomaniac, has been told all his life that he has a special purpose in God's plan. The only problem is, he can't shake off his doubts, his urges, or the trail of trouble and ruin that follow in his wake. He finds himself scouring Israel's swirling sands and purple skylines in search of the path of righteousness - and finds true love, filmmaking, and James Dean. A decade later, Raphael and `Marilyn' find each other wandering the littered, plastic-bright streets of Hollywood and set out to make a documentary about the transmigration of souls. But when the roleplaying goes too far, they find themselves past the point of no return in their quest to prove who and what they are to their families, God, the world, and themselves.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"[B]eautifully wrought, deeply unnerving...Ortega-Medina holds a mirror up to our darkest thoughts and urges - while showing the oneness of the human condition" -The Irish News

"[Ortega-Medina] is at his best at his most explosive - when he lets his sensationalist side loose... I felt the emergence of an exciting, original talent." -Maureen Kendler, Jewish Renaissance
