A suspenseful five episode BBC/HBO co-produced mini-series, Five Days follows the police investigation of a disappearance in a small town over the course of five non-consecutive days. It all starts when young mother Leanne (Christine Tremarco) and her two small children go missing in a parking lot while on their way to visit their grandfather. It soon becomes apparent that they are the victims of an abduction, and the search starts for the owner of a white van seen in the lot right before their disappearance. As the series unfolds, Leanne's husband Matt (David Oyelowo) and teen daughter Tanya (Lucinda Druzek) struggle under the stresses of their loss and the ongoing police investigation.

The investigation drags on for three months, uncovering lies and secrets and focusing on one suspect after another with devastating results for all involved.

Written by acclaimed crime writer Gwyneth Hughes, the series also stars Penelope Winton and Patrick Malahide as Leanne's parents.
