Deep in the remote Scottish Highlands sits an abandoned and dilapidated nursing home, seemingly long forgotten; it lies deteriorating. Amidst the damp and dust an elderly and confused woman, Doreen, sits in what once was the day room.
Doreen is seeking a way out of this nightmare but through every door is not an exit but memories of humiliation, abuse and a sense that she might not be as alone as she seems.
Care is a short psychological chiller which at its core is about the fear of what will happen to you when you no longer have the ability to care for yourself, because we all get old... but who will look after you?
