7.36 Per Hour takes place in an old person’s home where they are being looked after by a Carer (Nikoleta Hinova) The carer is in the kitchen making a cup of tea while also arguing over the phone with her spouse. In the middle of her argument she runs out of phone credit which, along with her appearance, indicate that she is struggling financially. The phone lock wallpaper shows a picture of two young children. She composes herself and brings the tea into the bedroom. The old person (Allan Thurbon) has heard the argument and attempts to lighten the mood with a humorous conversation about how, if they could stay with the carer until 7am they would get up and walk out as if nothing was wrong with them. The old person tries to show the nurse that it’s okay to be on your own but also recognises that it can be difficult., especially early on when you are used to being with someone. Due to the old person’s age and condition however, they have become tired over the course of the conversation and fall asleep, dropping a pair of wedding rings on the floor. The nurse tucks the old person back up properly but realises the rings when she steps on them.
