LETTERS is a film about Kirotaja, a man who was sent to fight in Afghanistan years ago, where he converted to Islam. He now returns home only to find himself facing other kinds of war; the front line in the decrepit Estonian town runs between Eastern and Western culture, men and women, common sense and madness. Somewhere amidst all these battles is his daughter, Angel, who Kirotaja has decided to find after all the years of absence. His only leads are the sound of his daughter crying, heard once on the telephone, and a dog-eared notebook full of letters addressed to her. Meanwhile, the town has other plans for him upon his return. English sub-titles.
