Storyline

During the 1950's soldiers for the U.S. and Russian governments were the subjugate victims of remote viewing, mind control and behavior modification experiments. American soldier Nick Marconi, after surviving decades of abuse and chemical experimentation at the hands of both countries, eventually escapes from the confines of the U.S. government. Little did they know, they had unwittingly created a man who can heal himself and others, does not age, and has powers such as telekinesis and remote viewing. While on the run, not only does he discover and begin using these powers, he also discovers that he has a child created through artificial insemination with sperm collected from Nick while being held as a test subject by the government. Zack's powers are ten-fold that of Nick's, and after finding out that Zack and his mother are also on the run from Russian and American agents, Nick must find them before they are captured and "disappear" beneath the secret government cloak of ...

Great Indie Film
8 March 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Signals is a great indie film with a compelling story and brilliant acting. The location shots were "right on" frequently filmed where the fictional events were to have taken place. Mr. Roman shows great maturity in his work over the years and this is a fine next step in his directing career. He also has great promise as an actor with a compelling delivery and a charm and charisma that jumps off the screen. The cast is remarkable making great use of this vehicle to further their careers and hone their skills. The skill with which the movie was edited is of the highest professional level and all the more remarkable since it was made without the financial backing of a studio. Great Job !
