The Beach Boys’ harmonies became the soundtrack for an entire generation but Wilson’s creative genius was as much a hindrance as a gift. When the love of his life, Melinda Ledbetter, arrived in his life, she rescued him from the grip of Dr. Landy. Stretching from the mid 60s to the early 90s, the film exposes the story behind one of the most remarkable musical journeys of our time.
