Storyline

It's Tuesday, April 14, 2020. The world is 35 days into the COVID-19 global pandemic. In Oakville, Ontario, Canada, a community wakes up to another day of home isolation, uncertainty, boredom, financial stress, worry, procrastinating teens and an uncooperative banana bread recipe. This unique documentary features the lives of 17 groups, the footage recorded by them using their own smartphones and cameras. We go behind the scenes of small business owners, essential workers, parents, students, children, political leaders and many more. This relevant and timely film provides us with an up-close and personal view into One Pandemic Day that will go down in history forever.

Heartwarming snapshot in time
18 August 2020 | by simonmiller-33559See all my reviews

I was one of the families featured in the film. It was amazing to look back on that day to see how much our perceptions of the world have changed since then. On that day, we still thought this might be temporary. We were trying to maintain the status quo and recreate "normal" at home with school, work, exercise etc. We were still glued to the news on an hourly basis, and trying to measure and assess our risk. We were all just trying to figure out how to stay safe. And it snowed that day, making it all the more not normal.

I don't know how the producers were able to go through all the footage submitted from all the different devices, but they made it work and blended it all together very well. They captured the personalities of the family members, including kids and animals. They contrasted the various experiences (good and bad) of the Oakville, ON families. The documentary also covered the impact on local small businesses trying to survive, along with multiple level of government officials working to support their constituents.

Nothing felt scripted - everything was authentic, raw and spontaneous. And the result is the movie captured the highs and lows and the reality of the families on that day. Parent struggling to get kids through a day of online learning. Hilarious adventures in baking. The challenges of working from a home office. Difficulties in getting healthcare services. This is a documentary everyone could potentially enjoy across North America.
