In January 1970, hippie-millionaire Michael Brody Jr. announces to the world that he’s giving away $25 million to usher in a new era of peace and love, igniting a psychedelic spiral of events. In a frenzied few weeks, Brody and his young wife are mobbed by the public, scrutinized by the media, and overwhelmed by the crush of personal letters responding to his extraordinary offer.

 

Fifty years later, it’s the discovery of twelve large boxes of unopened letters in an LA storage unit that inspires DEAR MR. BRODY. Neither Michael Brody Jr.’s story, nor the thousands of stories in the letters have ever been told — until now.
