Set in1976 apartheid South Africa, Letters of Hope tell the story of 16yearold Jeremiah, who really
wants to be a policeman and can’t understand why his father won’t let him.

 

His father is the local postman and expects Jeremiah to take after him. When his father is killed, Jeremiah is exposed to the real reason why he did his job he was operating a secret courier service that delivered letters from exile and prison. But Jeremiahs dream of becoming a Policeman creates a conflict between what he wantsand what his father wanted for him. Will he step up to take over from
where his father left off delivering letters of hope to families of freedom fighters in exile?
