THE LETTER ROOM

Directed by Elvira Lind

Produced by Sofia Sondervan

USA, 2020

30 min

When a kind-hearted prison officer (Oscar Isaac) is transferred to the letter room, he soon gets involved in an inmate's personal affairs...

A love story where empathy and compassion abound. What happens when your sense of morality goes against the demands of your job? Do you follow your gut or do you follow the rules? Can a lie make the world a little better? Director Elvira Lind gets us to ask big questions as she mixes emotionally charged themes and a score that keeps everything lighthearted.
