Just an ordinary family


Caught in a tragedy

The Jarrets are a typical American family.  Calvin is a determined, successful provider and Beth an organized, efficient wife.  They had two sons, Conrad and Buck, but now they have one.  While sailing Lake Michigan, Conrad and Buck were caught in a massive storm and Conrad watched as his brother died.  This strikes the family hard, and Ordinary People follows the Jarrets through the transformation Buck’s death incurs.
