Filmed over 15 months, this gripping one-hour documentary offers an unfiltered look at what it’s like to be a healthcare worker in the grips of the Covid-19 pandemic. It follows the staff of a hospital from the moment they admit their first Covid-19 patient in June 2020, till after the third wave.

Gripping and emotional – at parts intense, yet also hopeful – what makes Zero to Zero especially stand out is that it’s filmed by a healthcare worker with unprecedented access to the hospital frontline. This story narrates what unfolded during the darkest moments of the Covid peaks where no cameras were allowed.

It deals with patients during life and death situations, but the focus remains on the indomitable strength of the human spirit.

The unequalled footage from ICU and beyond tells a story of despair and hope. It humanizes the frontline workers, showing the world a glimpse of what they have had to face.
