The wind makes the sound of a whale but how can I tell you. The air smell of the awakening and the deceased but how can I tell you. My interpretation of nature is what I grasp at the very moment so how can I tell you.
This film seeks to reason the limitation of translating what one had experienced into words. As one translates, the other is only able to understand through their very own experiences. For instance, “The Rock is huge.” How huge of a rock can you imagine and does it amount or presents itself the same as what the other described?
