A man wakes from a coma speaking a fully formed but unrecognizable language baffling linguistic experts from around the globe. Coming off the back of his oscar winning short Stutterer, Director Benjamin Cleary teams up with fellow Director TJ O’Grady Peyton (who also takes up the lead role) for Wave – a funny and moving short film about a man isolated by the barrier of an unintelligible language.
