The basis for the development of all writing, from the earliest beginnings to the "data highway" of our computer society was always the will of people to communicate, to enter into contact with other people and to record thoughts and ideas.
Unlike the spoken word, writing also allows persons who are not present to participate in thoughts, historical traditions, ideas, etc. and stores information for other people beyond the boundaries of time and space.
The exciting documentary follows the trail of human writing from its beginnings to the modern digital age.
