IFC Films has acquired North American distribution rights to Jake Hoffman’s directorial debut, “Asthma.” 

The film centers on Gus, who is suffocating in life both figuratively and literally because of his asthma attacks. Gus only sees hope in Ruby, a confident tattoo artist. The two take an impromptu trip out of the city in a stolen classic convertible, and Ruby warns him not to fall in love with her, but it’s easier said than done. “Asthma” stars Benedict Samuel and Krysten Ritter alongside Nick Nolte, Rosanna Arquette, Goran Visnjic, Dov Tiefenbach, Rene Ricard and Iggy Pop. 

“Asthma” is set to be released on October 23.
