On 30th March 2020 Derek Draper was admitted to hospital with Covid-19. One year later he is still not home.

In this heartbreaking film, wife of Derek and journalist Kate Garraway, allowed cameras to document her story as the family adjust to a new way of life.

While grateful for the outpouring of sympathy towards her own situation, Kate knows she is simply going through what thousands of other families are all suffering too. And over the course of this film will meet those who have also been affected by coronavirus, from community nurse Orli, who after a year is still experiencing life changing symptoms of Long-Covid, and Julie whose husband Steve has still not regained consciousness after contracting the disease.

Coming to terms with a life very different from just twelve months ago and with never-before-seen access into the real story behind the headlines, this documentary shows a human side behind the statistics.
