“It’s March 2020: Fear is taking over as unknown virus sweeps the planet”. As it is evident from the official synopsis Help is a covid drama set at the start of the pandemic. The moving narrative of the drama follows the struggles as well as the relationship between a young care home worker and his patient. Although the characters are fictional, the plot is however based on a series of real events that were witnessed by the frontline workers. The backdrop is set in an imaginary care home based in Liverpool, where Sara takes a job and finds her mission. Just then, the pandemic hits the world, and her life is changed forever. Comer plays the role of the doctor Sarah who is smart but never seems to fit in. Even her family undermines her.
She meets a young-onset Alzheimer’s patient Tony. He is experiencing periods of confusion and vicious outbreaks due to his deteriorating mental health. He seems out of control, and no one on the staff but Sarah is able to manage him. As she is gifted with the ability to connect with people very easily, she starts bonding with Tony. Just when she starts believing in herself, covid hits and everything just shatters. The system fails to fight the pandemic, and midway the film takes a horror turn. The patients and care workers face the inescapable demon Coronavirus. The responsibility of saving the lives of those trapped patients who fight for their lives is solely on Sarah’s shoulders. Will she find a way out of the dark corner?. For the answer, you will have to watch it as Help will stream next week on Channel 4.
