The Letter from Mina

The Letter from Mina

CH 2004 15'

Director: Manuel Messerli

In 1824 Jonathan, a young English gentleman, struck out alone on a long journey to distant lands. His fiancée, Mina, stayed behind in London, but the pair maintained a lively correspondence during his absence. Some weeks later, however, Jonathan suddenly seemed to disappear without a trace. Mina's letters remained unanswered; her anxiety grew from day to day. One night she had an distressing dream, in which Jonathan appeared to her, and the next morning she awoke weak and distraught. She wrote Jonathan a last, desperate letter, in which she told him of her dream and implored him to return to her. But she received no reply. Mina never heard anything more from Jonathan. Almost 200 years have passed since those sad events. In a dark apartment, somewhere in a foreign city, a mysterious young man reads an ancient letter. It is the letter from Mina.
