Storyline

In the deserts of Baja California, Daria and Teresa are the last two speakers of the Ku’ahl indigenous language. In their world of oblivion and decrepitude, they lament the imminent extinction of the ku’ahl language and culture as the modern world moves on with indifference. But as long as Daria and Teresa converse together, ku’ahl lives.
