“The Chain is a film about one of the most terrifying nightmares of the human being: the fear of being our father. This idea scares us a lot because it doesn’t just mean inheriting certain odd habits. It goes beyond that. It is to succumb to our destiny, it is to follow a path that has been written for us, it is to let your dreams escape and settle for something smaller”, says the film director David Martín Porras.
Mike decides to put an end to his life when he discovers that he has the same neurological disease as his father. For this, he will enter an obscure chain of assisted suicides that operates under one rule: if you want to die, you have to kill someone first.
