Kirjad Inglile (Letters to Angel), Estonia 2011

Screenwriter    Madis Kõiv, Sulev Keedus

Director   Sulev Keedus

Producer   Kaie-Ene Rääk, Olli Soinio

Length   114 min


Synopsis:LETTERS TO ANGEL is a fiction 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.
