Death is not a dreadful taboo for David. He works as a palliative nurse, caring for those waiting for the end – often as a deliverance from immense pain and stress. A quiet, withdrawn yet very compassionate man, he provides seriously ill patients with relief with such tenderness and attention that gives rise to the questions: Why is David so attracted by death? What trauma did he suffer in the past? Is he not too closely related to the terminally ill? A dazzling performance is given by Tim Roth.
