Chuck, the beloved host of a morning show, finds himself on the front page of every newspaper and gossip magazine after a scandal involving his drug and alcohol addiction. All of Quebec is in shock, but for those close to him, this is the final straw. With his reputation on the line, Chuck heads to rehab to convince his spouse, his agent, and the public of his (relative) goodwill. The problem: Chuck doesn't really think he needs help… he tells anyone who will listen that he’s just a party guy!

Note from the artistic direction

After Audrey's Back last year, French Canada is back in Competition with Good Morning Chuck (Or the Art of Harm Reduction). The series tells the story of the fall of a very popular television host due to his drug addicion. With an off-beat tone, a beautiful black & white image, and a jazzy rhythm, the series confronts us with the misfortune of its lead character, as endearing as he is irritating.
