Robo Nurse

Australian Workers Film Guide


It is 10 years into the future and a fascist government has taken over. Lamenting that human nurses require paid leave and costly conditions, the government announces a program to replace human nurses with robots. Unions are banned across Australia and protestors arrested. While a robo nurse uncaringly manages patients in the ward, an underground rebel nurse, echoing the Terminator films, calls on others to find her and fight back.
