A two hour documentary that asks: What do we lose when a language dies? What does it take to save a language? It is filmed around the world: on a remote island off the coast of Australia, where 400 Aboriginal people speak ten different languages, all at risk; in Wales, where Welsh, once in danger, is today making a comeback; and in Hawaii, where a group of Hawaiian activists are fighting to save their native tongue.
