Storyline

THE SHIFT is the story of one 12 hour night shift in the ER where a veteran nurse, who struggles with the haunting guilt of his brother's drowning, is forced to train a new nurse. The veteran nurse, Kayle (Leonel Oliva), and the new nurse, Amanda (Casey Fitzgerald), are at odds throughout the story because, while they both struggle with the spiritual turmoil of what is right and wrong, they have both come to very different conclusions. Kayle, who was trained by Floyd (Danny Glover), believes in doing whatever is best for the patient, even if that means letting them rest in peace. Amanda believes you should fight for everyone until there is nothing left. While Kayle and Amanda take care of several patients that night, there is one patient, a young girl named Emily (Genesis Ochoa), who makes them question their beliefs. Emily is dying of cancer and has come to the ER due to another infection. The dichotomy of Emily's bravery and her mother's distress eats at the hearts of the two nurses...

Great Movie
6 April 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The ride "The Shift" takes you on, is one that leaves you gasping for air. The movie gave me great respect for the people that save our lives every day and don't get much credit for it. It also led to a lot of questions as to what's right and wrong with the life and death decisions these professionals make daily. When you leave the theater I'm sure you will have plenty to talk about! I found myself trying to figure out what was right and wrong, and really never came up with the answer..

Leo Oliva, Casey Fitzgerald, Danny Glover and the rest of the cast really make you forget that you are watching a movie, their acting was genuine and extremely emotional. It was also shot in a way where you felt like you are there observing, which is quite emotional for the viewer when your put in rooms of patients who might not make it to the next scene.

I think the great acting and story telling in this movie really show what Director Lee Cipolla can do. He did a great job making the script written by Leo Oliva come to life in a way I have not seen in many movies. He did an exceptional job making me care for the characters. Once you care for the characters you are sucked in and all else around you doesn't matter.

Great movie, but I'd live the younger kids at home. The mature content could be a but much. Look forward to seeing more work from the cast of this film.
