"Even with all my languages, there still aren't the right words."

When George, a serious-minded linguist with a passion for preserving dying languages discovers cryptic notes hidden in his shoes and coffee cup, he begins to think his wife might be trying to tell him something. But can he decipher the enigmatic language? Through a series of encounters both poignant and perplexing, this whimsical and quirky comedy explores the nature of love, and the attempts we make to find and express it.
