Anna is a survivor. Having endured the torture of life in a World War II Nazi prison camp she is taken to Britain and for many years lives an idyllic family life with her husband George and daughter Margaret, Following the death of her husband and now confined to a wheelchair Anna finds herself living in Westside, a residential home for the elderly. She or her family never imagined that the terrors of her wartime captivity could be relived and repeated in a modern day society. Anna's fighting spirit is pushed beyond its limit when the torment of persistent ' elder abuse' finally becomes unbearable. Her plight is witnessed by her son-in-law David who fights with his own conscience to ultimately lift the lid on the cruelty inflicted behind closed doors. The harsh comparison between wartime atrocity and modern day abuse is harrowing and highlights the vulnerability of the sometimes forgotten and often ignored elderly members of society.
