This film charts the relationship between a man imprisoned for drug smuggling and his wife and is being shot over the course of five years, a few weeks at a time.

Over a period of five years Karen takes her four young children on the long and laborious journey to visit her husband Ian,imprisoned for an unspecified crime. Away from the jail life goes on as the kids get into a fight over a taunt about their father by another school-kid and Karen,feeling lonely,sleeps with Eddie from the pub where she works. Towards the end of his sentence Ian is given a day out to spend with the family and disaster almost strikes after an allegation of drug smuggling,but somehow the family will pull through. (Imdb)

The mother, Karen, (Shirley Henderson) has to bring up a family of four children by herself. Filmed over a period of five years, Everyday uses the repetitions and rhythms of everyday life to explore how a family can survive a prolonged period apart. –TIFF
