In a Day -- A drama. A comedy. A romance with an edge. Your life can be turned upside down in a day.

One ordinary morning, young struggling musician Ashley Branstead (Lorraine Pilkington) suffers a shocking encounter with a stranger.

This disturbing assault inadvertently triggers what becomes a very intriguing day with another stranger, her apparent knight in shining armour, seemingly genuine – but odd- Michael (Finlay Robertson).

By his subtle and not so subtle persuasions Ashley finds herself spending an enchanting but unusual day with the spontaneous Michael, quickly becoming captivated by his generosity and charm. But all is not as it seems.

Ashley begins to suspect that his actions might have an ulterior motive. Who is the mysterious stranger? What are his true intentions and who is he acting for?

When his secret is eventually revealed the truth threatens to destroy their whirlwind romance.

Some days you wish had never started, then along comes one you hope will never end. Anything can happen in a day.

.. these are easy to like.. with characters you want to know more about, 29 October 2014
Author: bjarias from United States

In this exceptionally touching romantic-comedy, there is but one kiss, at the very end of the movie. But it's as sincere and heartfelt as any you'll find in many other intensely romantic films. This is a production that you'd like to believe the characters are real somewhere in life. Lorraine Pilkington.. .. is a favorite UK actor, and she is absolutely wonderful in this role. There's little complication in the script.. it's a film you'll either find charming, or maybe just too simple. But for those that enjoy this kind of film making, this is an exceptionally good and well enacted story. It meanders through time at a pace that is soothing.
