When an Australian Aboriginal woman applies to be a sitter at the home of a wealthy family, she has one request – that if hired, she must be allowed to teach the son her endangered language. Together she and the boy form a new family with ancient roots that are centered around words that the rest of the world has forgotten how to speak.
