Smoke Signals - ScreenplaySmoke SignalsMovie: Sherman Alexie wrote the screenplay of the movie "Smoke Signals". On the Net, we can buy the book, but we cannot buy the movie, because the DVD and VHS versions available are only for North America (Region 1, for the USA and Canada).

The orange book on your right is the screenplay, unexpensive and with a lovely intro.
