George Orwell’s words ‘sanity is not statistical’ fully reflect the idea of the film. Daniel, who has just been released from prison, is trying to make a new life for himself. It is not easy – he must take care of his alcoholic mother and find a job. Maybe he can find some happiness in a new relationship with a medical rescuer he has just met? Normal People are people with their secrets and weaknesses but also with dreams about a better ‘normality’.
Will they manage to realize their dreams?
