Movie Info

An Alcoholics Anonymous meeting provides the framework of this slice-of-life drama. The meeting is seen from start to finish as it takes place in the dingy basement of a church. The plot is adapted from screenwriter Gary Lennon's play Blackout. As each member of the group gets up to tell his or her story (and many of them are wrenching) it is plain to see that alcoholism affects many different kinds of people regardless of cultural background or social standing. At one point during the meeting, one of the members storms out and goes on a massive bender.
