In Broad Daylight
Press Play to start
When Kay, the granddaughter of one of the residents, arrives at the nursing home, she causes quite a stir. It is not often that anyone visits the elderly inhabitants. But the woman is not telling the truth. She is not a family member, but an investigative journalist who received a tip-off about serious irregularities at the institution that affect its ailing residents. The following investigation is frowned upon by virtually everyone – no one is truly interested in revealing the truth about the institutions created to "solve the problem" of the elderly. On top of that, Kay newspaper's investigative branch is about to be closed. Will the disillusioned protagonist, played by the magnetic Jennifer Yu, find the motivation to overcome the general apathy and expose the truth about the care system?
