Letters to Liam is an inspiring documentary film born in tragedy that showcases the power of the human spirit to overcome even the worst of tragedies. Featuring MMA fighter & entrepreneur Marcus Kowal and his wife and business partner Mishel Eder, the film tells the story of the heartbreaking death of their fifteen-month-old son Liam to a drunk driver, their incredible journey fighting for justice, and the inspiring power of their love in the face of tragedy.

Through Marcus, Mishel, and the community that surrounds them, we experience this unspeakable loss, healing process, and joy from a unique and intimate perspective. The strength, grace, and humor that they personify through this ordeal surpasses the terrible nature of the subject, and with compelling interviews from the individuals that have been affected by this tragedy coupled with gripping scenes including MMA fights, attempts to change the drinking & driving laws, courtroom sentencing and testimonials, a world record attempt to raise awareness, to the birth of Liam's little brother Nico, Letters to Liam delivers a tender, compelling, and engaging look at a pervasive problem tearing at the fabric of American culture.
