- Norm L. © 1998
Computer programmer, Norman Laithum, relocates from the big city to a rural, religious southern town for work. Unfortunately, the townspeople don’t take kindly to his being gay, and kidnap him for orientation brainwashing. Each stage of brainwashing deconstructs his sense of self, and survival instincts. It becomes clear in this thriller that there is nothing about religion, humanity, or life that is normal. And there is no love greater than that of a mother for their child.
