A documentary about fangirls - the beating heart of boybands for over five decades.

From The Beatles, to the Backstreet Boys, to Take That, and One Direction, I USED TO BE NORMAL: A BOYBAND FANGIRL STORY will take you back to the fun, fantasy and feelings of your teenage years. Filmed over four years, and spanning three generations, this intimate coming of age story follows a diverse group of women who have had their lives dramatically changed by their boyband obsessions. These four women must navigate the challenges of relationships, family, sexuality, and faith, while constantly grappling with all the problems and contradictions that are part of being in love with a boyband.
