Shown with Hear This!Based on the internationally known SuperDeafy character, No Ordinary Hero (featuring Academy Award winner Marlee Matlin) is the evolution story of a hero in this family drama. While Tony Kane, a deaf actor who plays a superhero on television, looks beyond his cape to influence a deaf boy, Jacob Lang, to redefine what “being normal” means, he also finds inspiration to transform himself. Jacob is being bullied at school and is constantly misunderstood by his father. When Tony and Jacob’s paths cross, they inspire belief in each other and in themselves.Dir.
