A couple argues over the merits of a self-help book, and then fate intervenes to teach them a lesson! Suzanne (Gillian Vigman) and Dan (Rob Roy Fitzgerald) are driving across the desert one night when they start talking about The Secret, a 2006 self-help written by Rhonda Byrne based on the premise that the power of positive thinking can bring about life-changing health, wealth and happiness. Needless to say, Suzanne and Dan hold very divergent views about the merits of the book. But what happens when events unfold during their journey that will settle their argument once and for all? “Mr. Universe” is a 2012 American short film directed by Chris Farrington.
