Sara isn’t much of a talker. Too much has happened – the accident, her parents’ separation, the fight with her best friend – and  something’s blocked inside her. Then fate brings an unexpected teacher into her life: the elderly Mr. T., with his ageless stories and passion for the Hebrew alphabet, which Sara begins to study. Is he just a crazy old man? Possibly. But thanks to those mysterious alphabet letters, an odd clay creature enters Sara’s life. And with it, slowly but surely, words return to her – the ones that count most in life: friendship, family and possibly even love.
