The Death and Life of Norman Bailey is a story of love and redemption. It explores the power of love and its ability to transcend the boundary of death. When we are faced with adversity, we are faced with a decision. Do we rise above? Or do we fall victim? Norman spends the majority of his life choosing the latter, but finds a spark of life at 74 years old. Before he is given a chance to fully embrace it, Norman suddenly dies. Is there a chance for love and redemption after death?
