Kate and Charlie are a young married couple whose bond is built on a mutual love of music, laughter, and drinkingaespecially the drinking. When Kateas drinking leads her to dangerous places and her job as an elementary school teacher is put into jeopardy, she decides to join AA to get sober. Sobriety isnat as easy as Kate had anticipated. She realizes she must face a difficult past, including a troubled relationship with her mother, a party girl in her own right. To cover up a drinking related incident which takes place in the classroom, Kate fabricates a story to her employer, the school principal, Patricia Barnes, who is overly nurturing and perhaps nosy. This lie soon balloons out of control and Kate is faced with many important choices she must make. Charlie, a music writer, whose care-free demeanor hasnat changed much since college, struggles to be supportive of Kateas new lifestyle. However, he doesnat quite grasp why she thinks she has a problem and loves her very much the way she, drunk and fun. His own juvenile tendencies are threatened by Kateas teetotalling and when the party is taken out of the relationship both Kate and Charlie question if their marriage is built on love or is just boozy diversion from adulthood. Kate find new friendships through AA. One with her support sponsor Jenny and another with vice principal at her school, Dave Davies. Davies who at first comes off as well-meaning, though awkward and a bit nerdy, has a bizarre history of his own that led him to a life of recovery. Even with the support of AA and new friends like Jenny and Mr. Davies, Kate still fells very alone during the delicate and often scary early days of sobriety. Without Charlieas support, their marriage suffers more, and both Kate and Charlie push each other away.
