Bill doesn't realize the seriousness of his disease until he hits bottom and meets another recovering alcoholic, Dr. Robert Smith (James Garner). As the two men become close and relate their experiences, they come up with an interesting way to stay sober. By making friends and sharing stories with other alcoholics, Bill and Robert continue to fight the battle against alcoholism and go on to found Alcoholics Anonymous, based on their own triumphant friendship. The work these two men began continues to help millions throughout the world who are in recovery and coping--one day at a time.

    • Good Movie that you may have overlooked!

      This movie is about the man who started the Achoholics Anomymous organization that is still is place today. Watching this movie may help you gain insight into this DISEASE, that effects so many. An informative and historical movie. I had a little difficulty finding this movie, and it's too bad its not readily available. Of course Overstock had it. The DVD was delivered quickly, and at a good price. Thanks Overstock!

    • Great movie for people in recovery

      This was a very entertaining and informative video. It is uplifting for anyone in recovery. It is down to earth and realistic. It shows how AA began and how beneficial it can be. I really enjoyed it and would reccommend everyone see it wether in AA or not.
