Director Delphine Morel offers an intimate portrait of the legendary Dreyfus Affair through the lens of the personal correspondence between Alfred and his wife Lucie over the course of his five year incarceration. After being sentenced in 1894 for high treason, the spouses exchanged hundreds of letters that were confiscated, opened and analyzed before reaching their intended recipients. These letters were a weapon of survival for Alfred. Their contents offer the viewer a window into the life in captivity of an innocent soldier whose only crime was being Jewish.
