"The Letter"

In 2015, Pope Francis wrote Laudato Si’, an encyclical letter about the environmental crisis, addressed to every single person in the world. A few years later, four voices that have gone unheard in global conversations were invited to an unprecedented dialogue with the Pope. Hailing from Senegal, the Amazon, India, and Hawaii, they bring perspective and solutions from the poor, the indigenous, the youth, and wildlife into a conversation with Pope Francis himself. This documentary film follows their journey to Rome, and their experiences while there. These powerfully moving personal stories are presented alongside the latest information about the planetary crisis and the toll it is taking on nature and people worldwide.
