In 1980 American jazz pianist Kazzrie Jaxen watches Ingmar Bergman’s FROM THE LIFE OF THE MARIONETTES. Afterwards she writes him a sixteen-page letter explaining how the film changed her life. It had started a dramatic inner journey which made her understand that she is not alone in her own body: hidden inside a small lump of fat under her skin rest the remains of her unborn twin. DEAR DIRECTOR is based on a real fan letter written to Bergman that Swedish director Marcus Lindeen found while doing research on unfinished Bergman scripts for a play.
