Kate and Charlie are a young married couple whose bond is built on a mutual love of music, laughter and drinking...especially the drinking. When Kate's drinking leads her to dangerous places and her job as a school teacher is put into jeopardy, she decides to join Alcoholics Anonymous and get sober. With the help of her friend and sponsor, Jenny, and her awkward but well-intentioned vice principal, Mr. Davies, Kate takes steps toward improving her health and life. Sobriety isn't as easy as Kate had anticipated, though. Her new lifestyle brings to the surface a troubling relationship with her mother, lies she has told her employer and the concern that her relationship with Charlie might be just a boozy diversion from adulthood.
