PlotEdit

A group of alcoholics meet up one night at a 12-step recovery meeting. At the beginning of the meeting, Jim reluctantly tells the story of his drug and alcohol abuse leading to his eventual sobriety and then leaves in frustration. The movie then alternates between Jim's ultimately futile attempts to resist the temptation to drink that night, and the remaining attendees of the meeting recounting their own struggles with addiction.
