Description:

The language of God can't be learned if you can't already speak it. Nor can it be recorded or reproduced. Despite this warning, Mithras, a sound engineer, heads out to a sacred reserve to spend a week trying to do just that. Armed with technical equipment, he disturbs a world of endless silence, a world permeated with mysticism and ritual. The seven days spent together

with the community at the reserve, however, change not only Mithras but also those who speak the divine language
