In a foreign land, a Man meets a Woman. He doesn't belong in the country. He's seeking shelter. He's seeking shelter, and maybe the Woman can help. They don't speak the same language. They kinda sorta speak some English. They speak broken English. They fall in love. Maybe. They get married. But that was a misunderstanding, and things get messy when the Woman's husband comes home.
Tonguetied is a broken language romantic comedy with songs. It's about love and talking and talking about love.
