Words -- It's almost impossible to imagine a world without words, but the program tries to do just that. It meets a woman who taught a 27-year-old man the first words of his life, hears a firsthand account of what it feels like to have the language center of your brain wiped out by a stroke, and retraces the birth of a brand new language 30 years ago.
