Norman tells the story of Norman Long (Byrd), a self-aware and darkly funny teen who is trying to handle his daily high school existence. An unexpected set of life-changing circumstances turns his world upside down and then ultimately right side up as he meets the magnetic Emily (VanCamp). With love, humility and a heavy dose of truth, he emerges to face challenges not meant for a boy his age.
