The Horse

The Horse | short docufiction | post-production

Will, a young, Polish domiciliary care worker in London, cycles from home to home to administer necessary care and companionship to elderly men. He is required to use an app called ‘Coral Care’ on his phone which monitors his efficiency, enforces his schedule, and removes the possibility for genuine emotional connection with his service users. This inevitably leads to stress and erosion of empathy, culminating in a terrifying mistake.
