Jim Morrison is one of the most famous rock singers in the world, the ultimate sex symbol, and a member of the famous "27 Club": singers who died in their 27th year, including Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, and Kurt Cobain. This documentary explores how this charismatic poet and singer from the band the Doors spent his final 24 hours. This compelling documentary unlocks the secrets, psychological flaws, and events that result in his tragic death on July 2, 1971. His on-stage antics and cryptic lyrics made him a cult hero during his own lifetime. In the years since his death, the legend has only grown. Using archival footage, dramatic re-enactment, and interviews with his closest companions, experience the last hours of Morrison's life and the gripping events that led to his tragic death in Paris.
