Four patients lie in comas in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) at King’s College Hospital in south London in March 2020. Each one has been struck down by Covid-19 during Britain’s first surge. This intimate, feature-length observational documentary follows their stories – and their families’ stories – over six months. At a time when the British public struggles with a second lockdown, the programme is a stark reminder of how frightening and destructive the virus can be.
