Marilyn attends an auction with acting coach Natasha Lytess and reclaims a white piano from her childhood. She re-experiences the period she lived with her mother, childhood sexual abuse traumas, and her mother’s psychotic episode which leaves Gladys institutionalized. The aftermath fragments little Norma Jeane’s daily life as Grace struggles to find a place for her with stable living conditions. A teenage Marilyn is signed to the Blue Book Modeling agency and learns to protect herself in the male-powered entertainment industry. She later attempts to negotiate her contract with studio mogul Harry Cohn at Columbia Studios.
