It's 1999 and over the course of one 12-hour shift at an Arkansas hospital, a junkie nurse, her scheming cousin and a group of black-market organ-trading criminals start a heist that could lead to their imminent demises.

 In a year that highlights the extent to which healthcare workers are indeed the most heroic and undervalued among us, it seems apt to screen a film which shows the dark depths to which desperation might send a person. Dark though those depths may be, Brea Grant’s film is brimming with humour and empathy. Hysterical in the truest sense of the word, 12 Hour Shift is one long night.
