A frontline medical worker is torn between his responsibilities as a doctor and a dad as he grapples with his decision to re-use an old N95 mask in the early weeks of the pandemic.

Inspired by the essay, “Can I Have a Mask?” by Asitha Jayawardena, MD, MPH, this short film explores the human side of medicine by attempting to understand the decision-making our healthcare workers were forced to grapple with due to inadequate PPE.

Directed by Sahan Jayawardena (USA)
