Clapping games and tongue twisters in multiple languages turn into rich stories when Judith Sloan records young immigrants in a theatre workshop.

Memories of life "back home", broken families, and thoughts about dual realities are woven together with rhythm games and performances as the kids reveal the game of adapting to life in America.

Tonuges Twisting was commissioned for the 2005 ShortDocs: Stories About Games.
