A group of five refugees make a daytrip to Oslo, a welcome respite from their monotonous life in the outskirts of society. It is also a day to rectify the past and justify a new future. Each with their own history, and their own agenda, they arrive in the capital city of a country that would seem to offer everything they could hope for. Their stories are woven into a whole by a letter, written by 83-year-old Mirza, who intends to deliver it to the king. Though director Hisham Zaman's characters may be foreigners in a new land, they are people with desires that reside within us all.
LETTER TO THE KING shows us the streets of Oslo from a perspective unknown to most. A disturbingly topical story from the country where everything and nothing is possible.
