Summary "[The film] joins David Harrison and Gregory Anderson, scientists racing to document languages on the verge of extinction. In Siberia, India and Bolivia, David and Greg's resolve is tested by the very forces stifling languages: institutionalized racism and violent economic unrest. The scientists must overcome their own fears and preconceived notions to draw speakers from decades of silence. Their journey takes them deep into the heart of the cultures, knowledge, and communities at stake"--Container.
