LIFE IS A MOMENT - by Marcus Kowal

As a professional MMA fighter, Marcus Kowal knows what it’s like to push his body to the limit. He has endured tremendous physical pain during his career, but it was nothing compared to the loss that awaited him. 

The second he met his son, Liam, Marcus knew that his life had changed forever. He had to stop merely thinking like a fighter and a business man and start thinking like a father. There was nothing more important than the tiny baby in front of him. Marcus cherished every moment he spent with his son, but there would never be enough. In 2016, Liam was struck by a drunk driver. He never regained consciousness. 

Through his memoir, Marcus shows you the depths of his grief. His candid writing covers every emotion he felt when he was confronted with the loss of his son. He was devastated, but he was also determined to stop Liam from becoming just another faceless statistic about the dangers of drunk driving. He and his wife, Mishel, embarked on a new fight to give Liam the justice he deserved. 

In Life Is a Moment, Marcus invites you to fight alongside the couple and join them in celebrating Liam’s life.

Letters to Liam - A Documentary Film

Letters to Liam is an inspirational expose documentary that follows MMA fighter Marcus Kowal and his wife Mishel as they navigate life and attempt to change the mentality and laws surrounding drinking and driving after the tragic loss of their fifteen month old son Liam. 

Marcus and Mishel’s navigate a flawed justice system, attempt to create a real change in Liam’s name, and find a way to move forward with life. Only ten months after Liam’s death, Mishel is preparing to give birth to their second child, Nico, and although this is a light at the end of a dark tunnel, they are still dealing with the loss of Liam. Marcus deals with this in the only way he knows how, with the aggressive pursuit of change that is fueled by the fighter within. He spends every ounce of his energy raising awareness and sharing his story in the hope that no other parent will have to go through what he and Mishel have gone through.

Marcus & Mishel are meeting with lawmakers, community leaders, tech gurus, and leading entrepreneurs in an attempt to implement real change in Liam’s name.

They navigate the murky waters of a tragedy that no one would ever want to face. From the incomprehensible pain of losing a child, to the euphoria of bringing a new life into the world, the film explorers the ability of the the human mind to overcome even the greatest of obstacles. Through Marcus, Mishel, and the friends and family that surround them, we experience this tragedy and joy from a unique and intimate perspective. The strength, grace, and humor that they personify through this ordeal surpasses the tragic 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, courtroom sentencing and testimonials, attempts to change the laws, world records attempts to raise awareness for their cause, to an actual live C-section birth, Letters to Liam delivers a heartfelt, compelling, and entertaining look at an ongoing problem that tears at the fabric of American culture.
