Letter to a Child offers intimate conversations with strangers about their lives and living in this world. It revolves around the child and childhood as the basis for one’s outlook on one’s life. From there, it is only a short step to reflections on essential themes; today’s life and world, our place in the world, the social, political, moral, but also the spiritual and emotional. The film attempts to penetrate the deepest experiences of life. Through conversation, it casually reveals the individual’s sense of this world, one’s life and human faith (faith in this world). It is not a survey, nor an interview; these are encounters, deep conversations, human dialogues, which also slowly reveal one’s own world. The film intertwines the intimate diary with the social chronicle.
