Brodie, a gifted linguist, learns unsettling news about the baby she carries.
Brodie, a gifted linguist, learns unsettling news about the baby she carries. Unable to get comfort from her girlfriend, she finds it in the two least likely sources imaginable: the elderly speaker of a vanishing language and a gorilla at the local zoo.
Leaping into the nature of language, linguistics and love this is a dark comedy exploring the power of words and what we must create when they’re lacking. Join a cast of three women, nine characters and a gorilla in this intergenerational, and interspecies, look at how humans communicate: it’s chatter, it’s drive, it’s hunger and it’s longing.
