Jake's voice-over reflects on the human love of communication. Martin and Jake visit a cemetery. A man is at the grave of Martin's wife; he leaves before Martin can learn why he's there. In Iraq, a teen wants to show off his comedy chops; a female soldier is in a firefight and tries to rescue a wounded colleague. A lotto winner who hasn't cashed his ticket looks for redemption and chances on a young minister who delivers disorganized sermons in a church in disrepair. At 9:50 in the morning, Jake lets go of a kite, and he and his father follow it. The kite, the Internet, two men burdened by guilt and shame, wounded soldiers, and Jake's single-minded focus come together. Written by <>

In real life, if the text of an e-mail is altered after the send key is pressed, the email will not be altered on the recipient's end. It will either not go through at all, or the original copy will go through. This is because the interrupted signal does not get updated on the fly. See more »

Jake Bohm: When we hear the human voice, we instinctively want to listen, in hopes of understanding it.
Jake Bohm: Even when the speaker is searching for the right words to say.
