Nightingale

The heavily overworked nurse Julia is stalked during her night shift at the nursing home. The tension rises so high that Julia is pushed to the limit. 

A blood clotting allegory on our care system. Nightingale has premiered at the Fantasia Film Festival in Montreal in the summer of 2020.
