Young Mona idolizes her father, a brilliant mathematician. When he suddenly demonstrates signs of mental illness, Mona begins to obsess about numbers, using them to interpret an unpredictable and threatening world.

Agrelo clumsily attempts to play jaunty larkiness against somber situations.
Alba certainly tries her best at portraying not just a beauty but also a beautiful mind, yet very few things add up despite director Marilyn Agrelo's efforts.
Cuter than a basket of puppies licking a litter of kittens, "An Invisible Sign" is an excruciatingly whimsical collision of adult themes and kid-friendly aesthetic.
When an errant ax lands in Alba's thigh, the film goes from inept to kind of brilliantly bad; it's a teachable moment, though lessons learned may vary.
Agrelo bumbles the mystery and borderline insanity of the material. What should be a bold depiction of a frazzled mind is instead a bewildering feature with a tenuous hold on human concerns.
The film is a puzzling mix of sentiment, black humor, and loads and loads of nonsensical behavior.
Simply put, An Invisible Sign is one of the worst movies we've seen in a very, very long time.
Strictly recommended for those who love their movies quirky, in monstrously large doses.
