What is Help all about?

Set in a fictional Liverpool care home, Help tells the moving story of the relationship between a young care home worker (Comer) and a patient (Graham), whose lives are changed forever by the onset of the coronavirus pandemic in spring 2020.

Sarah works as a carer at Bright Sky Homes.

Sarah has a special talent for connecting with the residents, including one in particular, 47-year-old Tony.

Tony’s Young Onset Alzheimer’s has left him living out his days in care as his mind slowly deteriorates and he builds a bond with Sarah.

Then March 2020 hits and everything Sarah has achieved is thrown into doubt with the arrival of the Coronavirus pandemic.

She and her colleagues tirelessly fight tooth and nail, ill-equipped, poorly prepared, and seemingly left helpless by the powers that be.

But it’s not long until Sarah finds herself in a dark place.

Although we don’t know when it’s going to be on exactly, the fact that a first-look image has been released means that Help isn’t too far away.

Look out for it this autumn.
