Plot Summary

A pair of scientists working for Babyco, a massive multinational specialising in baby products, learn how to understand what babies and toddlers are saying to each other. They discover a secret language hitherto known only to children which they hope to use to learn the profound secrets of life that all babies are born with but which they forget with age.
