Two siblings organise a voice casting. A genetic defect causes the brother to lose his voice. Therefore, they are looking for another voice with which he could continue to talk. Or even better: many voices! One for every situation in life. 

The story was inspired by the author's brother who was born with a walking impediment He leads an autonomous life, studies, goes on parties and has been acting for many years. For the last couple of years, he has been losing the ability to speak and he will soon have to rely on an artificial voice. He can choose this voice. This is where the fantasy begins: What if you could have more than one voice? For example Ryan Gosling's voice? What if her brother had one voice just for Mondays, a strong voice and one for seducing? How does that affect his siblings if his sister writes about that?
