Something lurks in the corners of this nursing home.
It hides in the walls and creeps through doorways, unwelcome and shy. Something forgotten long ago and left to waste away. Waiting, pleading...
James can see it. He's not sure anyone else can.
For three months he's worked here. The pay is shit. His bosses expect too much. His coworkers don't give a damn. And half of the residents are waiting around to die.
It's tough going.
When James makes friends with Sally, one of the newest residents, he feels like maybe things will start to change. But the forces at work here are old and strong. And in aged care, tragedy is never far away.
Hot on the heels of the Royal Commission into Aged Care, this scintillating, magical new radio play examines the apathy and neglect foisted on our elderly in the name of care, and the many workers co-opted into that process.
