Love, humility and a heavy dose of truth.
Jonathan Segal‘s Norman a film starring Dan Byrd (Cougar Town), Emily VanCamp (Revenge), Adam Goldberg (Saving Private Ryan), Richard Jenkins (Jack Reacher), and Billy Lush (The Black Donnellys). Norman is a high-school student with a lot of emotional baggage–he is overly self-conscious, living with an ill parent. In order to cope with his pain and disappointments–he pretends to have cancer. For Norman, it’s just his day to day routine that is until he meets Emily, a girl who likes Norman–and his teacher (Goldberg).
Norman tells the story of Norman Long (Dan 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 (Emily VanCamp). With love, humility and a heavy dose of truth, he emerges to face challenges not meant for a boy his age.
