Midway through the movie "12 Years A Slave", Epp's wife asks Solomon to deliver a letter to the grocery store and made certain that Solomon could not read, leading the audience to believe the letter held some secret she did not want anyone to know about except for the store owner. On another trip to the store, along with the groceries that were purchased, the owner provides a scroll of parchment carefully wrapped in a bow.
On the way back to the plantation from the store, Solomon runs into the woods to read the letter in secret. He seems shocked by what's in the letter, but there is no mention (that I recall) as to what is in the letter. What is in the letter!?
