At the time of his death, Marvin Gaye was living with his parents in Los Angeles while on a break from his ongoing tour. He had become increasingly withdrawn and paranoid due to the excessive use of drugs which put additional strain on an already fragile relationship between him and his father. This ultimately led to a fatal confrontation between them and Marvin being shot twice.

This documentary is an intimate exploration into Marvin Gaye’s inner turmoil in the days leading up to his tragic death. It also looks back at how he crafted some of the best-known love ballads in history from “Sexual Healing” to “Let’s Get It On” during one of the most tumultuous periods in American history.
