Script about a south Asian mental health nurse called TIANA with blue hair.

TAINA. A 31-year-old eccentric south Asian nurse who works in a psychiatric unit in a mental health hospital in Merseyside UK. TAINA is tough but caring and doesn't care what people think of her. TAINA is surrounded by her gothic artwork she created herself. TAINA is in her flat eating her breakfast then she put on her colourful makeup. TIANA brushers her teeth. She brushers and ties up her long dark blue hair. TIANA gets all her stuff together, puts her skull-headed notebook in her bag and leaves to go to work. TAINA sits on the bus listening to her punk music through her headphones.

INT NORTHVIEW MENTAL HEALTH HOSPITAL

TAINA enters her workplace, gets her bottled water from the canteen, Checks the files on the computer, Goes around the ward to tidy up and check on the patients.

(Flashback) Six-year-old TAINA was once tortured by her schizophrenia stricken father. She was scolded on the arm with a scolding hot kettle. She had a vision of him being a zombie ready to claim her life. Her dad was taken away into a home.

TAINA Visit a 70-year-old man called JASON who is also suffering from schizophrenia

JASON

You don't look like a nurse

TAINA

And how's a nurse supposed to look?

JASON

Why do they let you in with hair like that?

TAINA

It doesn't matter about my hair colour just as long as I am good at my job

INT Reception

TAINA writes in her notebook that she is fed up with people criticizing her for her hair colour. TAINA is promoting it on Facebook and has even had recent attention from the media. I am a nurse and I specialize with people for mental health. I will rebel and be proud of my uniqueness. They're probably all just jealous anyway. This is modern times and it can't affect my nursing career.

TAINA is called the blue nurse not only for her dark blue hair and blue uniform. She works in a blue room with blue arrow signs in the hospital where she works.
