Synopsis: 24 hours. Dagmara, a Polish nurse, works the day shift. Analyn, a Filipina nurse, works the night shift. The two care-workers, who barely interact outside of their weekly handover, must come together to face insurmountable challenges; being understaffed, underfunded, and having their competence challenged by the son of a resident. Set against a backdrop of brewing tension and anti-immigrant sentiment – over the course of two days and one night, Take Care shows the quiet revelations that can occur in a care home.
