A personal documentary about an exchange between a filmmaker and an inmate who converted to Islam in a Scottish prison. Takahiro Ueno met the inmate last winter and began his correspondence. In the letters, he touches the inmate’s memories, complex feelings, and the confession of his crime. The exchange forces the filmmaker to wonder about himself and our capacity of doing wrong. Can true forgiveness ever happen?
