Five people take a day trip from a refugee camp to Oslo, and their various stories unfold. Following his stunning debut feature, Before Snowfall (EIFF 2013), director Hisham Zaman returns with this beautifully structured, highly emotional and deeply memorable ensemble piece. Winning him the prestigious Best Nordic Film award at the Gothenburg Film Festival for the second time in a row, Letter to the King is further evidence that Zaman is emerging as an important new voice in world cinema.
