Irish poet GearĂ³id Mac Lochlainn and Lithuanian theatre director Albertas Vidziunas retrace the steps of a gang of 19th-century book-smugglers who defied the oppressive Russian regime to save the Lithuanian language from extinction. The pair compare the parallel histories of their native tongues, and explore the relationship between language and identity.
