Abnormal follows the journey of 21-year-old Sonny, who has been diagnosed with Schizophrenia. As his mother, Robin, shelters him from the harshness of reality, Sonny moves through with little knowledge of the world around him. But as Sonny pieces together his own reality, he begins to ask too many questions which causes the tension to build and Robin finally cracks under the pressure. Sonny challenges Robin to help him discover his own truth and to answer the impossible question: "What is normal?"
