Sign - A Game About Being Understood

Nicaragua in the 1970s had no form of sign language.

Fifty deaf children from across the country were brought together to an experimental school in Managua. Without a shared language to express themselves, the children did the only thing they could—they created one. In Sign, we follow a small piece of their journey.
