Two brothers from the San Francisco Bay Area, deep in the 60's music scene, are heading for fame and fortune with their band, People! In 1968, the band, led by Robbie and Geoff Levin, has a hit record on the charts, but they throw it all away to join Scientology. Not only does the band disintegrate, so, too, does the relationship between the brothers.


For nearly 50 years, the division of family continued, distorting all concept of loyalty and love. This is the story of brainwashing and the effect it had on a family and a rock band. It is also a story of redemption and reconnection. The band has reunited and recorded a new album. Do overs are always possible.

Preceded by the short drama “A Mind Cannot Touch”.  See link below.
