George is consumed with preserving and documenting the dying languages of far-flung cultures. Closer to home, though, language is failing. George doesn’t know what to say to Mary, to keep her from leaving. George also doesn’t recognize the deep feelings that lab assistant Emma has developed. Interspersed with George’s dissolving love life is the research into language and what we’re really saying when we speak.
