A provincial hospital in Bulgaria, Covid ward. This observational documentary draws our attention to the country’s anti­quated healthcare system and reminds us of our attitudes at the time when faced with an unknown threat. A skilfully constructed survey of the bleak goings-on in an underfunded facility where, even when looking death in the face, people still manage to find their sense of humour.
