Celesta Davis and her sister are on a mission: to finally find some peace in their lives by tracking down and confronting the family friend who molested them when they were little girls—an experience that still leaves them raw and shaky 25 years later. With video camera in hand, Davis documents the whole process, from the first family discussion, some questions about their own father's behavior, the terror and excitement and doubts about their task, to the knock on the now-old man's door. Winning awards and sparking passionate discussion at virtually every festival screening, Awful Normal is an extraordinary, courageous film, at once intensely personal, unbearably suspenseful, emotionally devastating and thoroughly inspiring.
