Ordinary Days follows the mysterious disappearance of Cara Cook (Jacqueline Byers), a bright and athletic college student with an overbearing and protective mother and a much more relaxed dad. Over five tense days with little evidence and even fewer leads, the story is examined from three different perspectives. First, her parents, then the troubled Detective Brightbill, and lastly, what happened to Cara is revealed. Ordinary Days touches on three compelling film genres – drama, mystery and suspense to explore themes of family and love.
