A love story exploring the hopelessness of the committed alcoholic and the helplessness of those who care.
Rehab Clinic. Disillusioned lawyer meets Kensington socialite. Michael, clumsy, bumbling, struggling, confused about almost everything and in denial about his alcoholism; Lottie a wealthy, hardened alcoholic. They prop each other up midst the emotions of self examination, confessional and penitence - the hallmarks of the Minnesota Model for the reformation of the alcoholic. Discharged, a relationship is bound to form - albeit that relationships in early recovery are frowned on by the gurus, the powers that be. When Lottie relapses, Michael has to ask himself whether he loved her or was just attracted to her body and to her wealth – and to examine if he has played any part in her downfall. He is convinced that he can pull her back from the abyss. But they say that the only person who can hope to save an alcoholic is that alcoholic.
Sorry, but this story has a sad ending.
