ORDINARY DAYS tells the captivating story of what happens when Deb, the frazzled and uptight graduate student, loses her thesis notebook in New York City. Warren, the struggling artist and professional cat sitter, finds and returns her notebook. Their actions affect Jason and Claire, a couple inching toward marriage who can’t seem to comprehend each other due to an unspeakable tragedy. With equal doses of humor and poignancy, ORDINARY DAYS celebrates how 8.3 million individual stories combine in unexpected ways to make New York City such a unique and extraordinary home. “[ORDINARY DAYS] captures with stinging clarity that uneasy moment in youth when doubts begin to cloud hopes for a future of unlimited possibility.” — Charles Isherwood, The New York Times
