THE LETTER READER

The film tells the story of Siyabonga, a 12-year-old boy from Johannesburg who is sent to a village in KwaZulu-Natal to live with his grandmother while his parents are sorting out their marital problems. As a city boy who is not accustomed to doing household chores, Siyabonga struggles to adapt. He discovers the power of words as he reads letters that put a smile on people’s faces, until one day, a letter with bad news lands in his hands. A letter addressed to Nobuhle - a beautiful 25-year-old wife of a migrant worker living in Johannesburg.  He takes one look at this beautiful woman and falls in love with her. As Nobuhle waits anxiously to hear the words of a long-awaited letter… Siyabonga realizes that the letter outlines the end of Nobuhle’s marriage… he can’t bring himself to break her heart, so in that instant, Siyabonga decides that Nobuhle deserves better.
