“DEFINED MORE BY THE HUMAN CAPACITY FOR RESILIENCE AND COMPASSION THAN BY A RELENTLESS SENSE OF DOOM… ‘76 DAYS’ SUGGESTS A WAY TO FACE THE FUTURE, WITH TEARS BUT PERHAPS ALSO HOPE.”

Nicolas Rapold, The New York Times

On January 23rd, 2020, China locked down Wuhan, a city of 11 million, to combat the emerging COVID-19 outbreak. Set deep inside the frontlines of the crisis in four hospitals, 76 Days tells indelible human stories at the center of this pandemic from a woman begging in vain to bid a final farewell to her father, a grandpa with dementia searching for his way home, a couple anxious to meet their newborn, to a nurse determined to return personal items to families of the deceased. These raw and intimate stories bear witness to the death and rebirth of a city under a 76-day lockdown, and to the human resilience that persists in times of profound tragedy.
