Night Sky depicts the story of a brilliant and articulate astronomer named Anna. When Anna is unexpectedly hit by a car, she loses her ability to speak; a condition known as aphasia. As Anna reintegrates into her world, she must try to realign and reconnect with her family, her friends, and her colleagues. Ultimately, Anna discovers the limitations and possibilities of language. She also comes to accept the nature of change both in herself and in her universe.
