After its former president Dési Bouterse is convicted for murder, the country remains bitterly divided. Opponents and supporters of the ex-president are unable to put the country's turbulent history behind them. Ananta Khemradj (32) wants to know what it takes to reunite the Surinamese people. While she begins her quest as a former journalist, she becomes increasingly involved with the true question underlying her mission: If facts are not enough, what do you need to heal a nation? “Dear Convicted President” is a highly personal film by a filmmaker who almost collapses under the responsibility she feels.
