On April Fool's Day 1984, hours before his 45th birthday, Marvin Gaye was shot dead by his father in the shared family home they called the 'Big House.' What happened there - and whether it was murder or suicide - has been shrouded in mystery since. In charting the untold truths about what happened during Marvin Gaye's haunting final days, Soul is a parable about an American family prepared to do anything to promote and protect their children. Not just the story of Marvin Gaye, but of many a musical icon whose family life has been crushed by the effects of their stardom - a searing portrait of the pitfalls of the American dream.
