Nisaro Karim an actor and film maker based near Birmingham turned his lockdown life into a wave of creativity.
After graduating with a law degree in 2014, the budding creative decided to follow his heart and pursue a career in the Arts.
In 2018 he created ‘Five Pence Productions’, a film production company that aims to entertain and explore social constructs.

The short film is based on the coronavirus pandemic and tackles grief after the protagonist loses her daughter to Covid-19.
The film was created in compliance with Covid guildines and the role of the Mother is played by Dr Lisa Blissitt.
