    2008     Drama    

    Universal Signs, a groundbreaking "silent" film, presented in mesmerizing American Sign Language (ASL) with English subtitles, touches the hearts and minds of hearing and Deaf audiences alike.

    After the death of his fiancée's daughter while in his care, Andrew (Anthony Natale, Mr. Holland's Opus), a Deaf artist, becomes a prisoner of his own mind. Tormented day and night by memories and self-blame, Andrew falls in a downward spiral of depression and anger that alienates everyone around him. It is only through a serendipitous friendship and new love with Mary (Sabrina Lloyd, Sports Night) that Andrew is able to sense the life around him -- forgive himself, rediscover his muse, and experience the transformative power of love.
