David is a full-time caregiver who works with terminally ill patients. Efficient and dedicated to his profession, he develops strong—even intimate—relationships with each person he cares for. But outside of his work David is ineffectual, awkward, and reserved. It’s clear his devotion to his patients comes at the expense of his personal life. He needs each patient as much as they need him. For years he has carried a burden of guilt and remorse. Now the weight has grown unbearable—David must return and face his past in order to heal. A study of grief and isolation that also examines the way families often blindly trust the care of their loved ones to strangers, CHRONIC stars Tim Roth as David, in his most subtle, profound performance to date. –Monument Releasing
