Bizarre fairytale about a boy who one morning notices that everyone has started speaking a strange language. Beautiful parable about communication in a world where everybody is mainly engrossed in themselves.
Job wakes up one morning and notices that from one day to the next everyone has started speaking a strange language. But gradually it becomes clear that Job himself has switched to another language: talking backwards. By means of a dictating machine he plays backward, he is able to communicate with the rest of the world.
