Based on an original text from the graphic novel "V for Vendetta", "Valerie's Letter" is a poetic short monologue with a message of tolerance and love; love that transcends the physical shells we humans live in; loving someone for who they are, loving that one inch within them, that truly belongs to only them and is actually who they are.
Valerie's letter is an autobiographical account of a homosexual's life set in a time and place where those who were of a different sexual orientation were despised and persecuted. The movie then explores the various relationships Valerie shares with her girlfriends and about the obstacles of coming out to the society and her parents, about the true nature of her sexual orientation. Valerie becomes a movie star and falls in love with Ruth on a movie set. But her happiness is short lived as war breaks out and all the homosexuals are rounded up and tortured. Ruth kills herself and Valerie is tortured behind bars. Before her death Valerie writes a letter to let the world know about her life.
She reminds the world to not let the powers that be take the self away from the person, about the freedom to be themselves, despite whatever anyone else tells them to do or be and to not lose, sell or give away sell that one inch that belongs truly to them.
