Full film details

She always had the best intentions.

A small-town news reporter with big ideas, Christine (Rebecca Hall) dreams of bringing pure journalism to the screen – honest, touching and true portrayals of the successes and failures of real people in her local community.

But social justice doesn’t sell.

Pressured by her station manager (Tracy Letts) to find drama in the streets and bring it to viewers at home, Christine begins to feel uncomfortably disconnected from her job at Sarasota, Florida new station.

Pan to her life off-camera, and the story grows darker.

Having suffered on and off with crippling depression and relentless self-disappointment, Christine begins to crumble. She spends the days in bed. Her relationships with family and co-workers begin to slip.

And suddenly it seems there’s only one way out.

Based on true events, director Antonia Campos delicately unearths the events behind one of the most shocking moments in television history, revealing the story of Christine Chubbuck, and what drove her to do what she did on air, the morning of July 15, 1974.
