The Dormant Language of Love (2022)
Running Time: 10:58
Every 17 years like clockwork, the skies of the northeastern United States are filled with millions of cicadas singing passionate songs of romantic longing. Amorous swarms of Brood X, the largest group of periodical cicadas on earth, emerge from deep underground in the hopes of finding true love before their swift death.
