A whole world vanishes when a language disappears. Martin is a young researcher trying to record such a language for future generations. But the last two old men who speak it categorically refuse to talk to each other. What's the reason for the half-century-long conflict, and can the silence be broken? This quirky darling of festival audiences combines love drama, magical realism, and playful irony.
