Karisa’s city-life is interrupted when his ninety-two-year-old Grandmother is accused of being a witch. Returning to his rural village to investigate, he finds the family in turmoil, and Karisa must choose which side he is on.

Along the coast of Kenya, a frenzied mix of consumerism and Christianity is turning hundreds of families against their elders like this, branding them as witches as a means to steal their land.

Filmed with incredible closeness, The Letter is a gripping family drama that reveals rural Kenya as a volatile crucible, where newly imposed influences mix with old traditions.
