The increasingly desperate efforts of a middle-aged nurse to make contact with other people finally pushes her to the extreme…
CODE BLUE is a contemporary tragedy about a hospital nurse dealing with terminal patients with whom she has a questionable attachment. One night she witnesses a brutal rape, but she is not the only one to see it. The new, and highly unwelcome, intimacy she shares with a previously anonymous neighbour is set to change her life irrevocably.
