    Trailer calling for people to join the national hospital service.

  • Description

    National hospital reserve - trailer.

    M/S of two women with a child looking at poster advertising for National Hospital Service. One of the women suggests that maybe they should join in case another war breaks out. The other woman says that their will not be another war an so it would be a waste of time, to which the other woman replies "I hope not, but supposing it did ?". The woman starts to think about the horrific idea. Suddenly there is the sound of a siren, a bomb dropping and huge explosion. As the smoke clears the woman stands in the ruins of a building with her son lying dead or badly injured in the rubble. The woman snaps out of her horrific day dream and agrees with her friend. The camera homes back in on the poster.
