SummaryMartin wants to be as normal as possible and is embarrassed by his family, whom he thinks are barking mad. One day Martin falls in love with Dalia, but every time he goes to talk to her he gets a helium voice. Has he gone mad just like his family? Martin tries to appear as normal as possible to Dalia and her family. But the more he tries, the further he pushes Dalia away. In the end, he has to take a leap of faith and trust that he is good enough as he is. Only then can he conquer love.
“The pursuit of normality is the purest form of insanity.”
