FOR THE LOVE OF WORMS

FEATURE FILM

Synopsis
Some time in the near future an advanced but expensive system of universal healthcare collapses under its own weight. Against this backdrop, Frida works as a social worker in one of the omnipresent health insurance companies. She is updating digital 'health profiles' of the weak and elderly, but loses her job for helping clients beyond the set rules. An outspoken critic of harshened government policies, she joins an underground group to sabotage the system. To her dismay she discovers that lethal mistakes are made while trying to save people. Frida becomes deeply disillusioned with the group, but when governments policies get worse, she is compelled to swallow her resentment and rushes back to her friends. But how far will they have to go to save lives when initial strategies have proven useless?

Historical Context


For The Love Of Worms is a feature film dealing with potential future dangers of registration technology in the context of a corrupted health care system. The story is loosely inspired by a Dutch underground resistance movement in World War II, a group of artists and medical students who tried to save people from the extermination and forced labour machine of the Nazi’s.
