"Finding Normal" is a feature-length cinema-verite documentary film about long-time heroin and crack addicts trying to rebuild lives devastated by addiction and incarceration. The film follows two men and one woman leaving a detoxification treatment center in Portland Oregon, and entering Central City Concern’s Recovery Mentor program, which provides clean and sober housing, drug treatment, and - perhaps most importantly - a recovery mentor who knows first-hand what it takes to stay clean, stay out of prison, and build a “normal” life. We witness the day-to-day challenges of recovery, the heart-break of relapse, and the simple victories of a “normal” life: singing in a church choir, going fishing, watching a daughter graduate from high school.
