Oscar-nominee Tim Roth ('The Hateful Eight', 'Selma') is David, a nurse who works with terminally ill patients. Efficient and dedicated, he develops strong and intimate relationships with each person he cares for. But outside of his work, David is struggling with an ongoing burden of guilt and remorse. As the weight becomes unbearable, David must face his past in order to heal.
Winner of the 2015 Cannes Best Screenplay award, 'Chronic' is an enigmatic and deeply moving character study from Mexican auteur Michel Franco ('After Lucia'). Poignant and reflective, but also unsentimental and challenging in its intriguing moral dimensions, it features a career-best performance from Roth as a man at the end of his emotional tether.
