The Letter Room

Richard (Oscar Isaac), a lonely man in his 40s, works as an officer in a maximum security prison. He has been working in the prison system for most of his adult life and for years attempted to climb the ladder to a more prominent position, where he hopes to make some changes for the better. When his supervisor Irene (Eileen Galindo) calls him in for a much-anticipated meeting he is excited. When he finds out his new position is a letter screener in a windowless office, he decides to make the most of it.
