Will a man who speaks nine languages ever learn to communicate with his wife?  Will the last two speakers of a soon-to-be dead language break their vow of silence?  In The Language Archive, the lives of five people are imaginatively weaved together as they discover that no matter how many words they can speak, it's the heart's language that matters most.
