Jim Burton has become a chronic alcoholic since the death of his young daughter, and is cared for by hard-working wife. A doctor's warning that Jim could become mentally ill strikes enough fear into him that he really wants to cure himself, but he can't. One night, he meets William Tobin, a fellow drunk, and finds that he helps himself by trying to help Tobin. Thus is born, amid setbacks, a group resembling Alcoholics Anonymous. Written by

This is a look back at a big problem for the past generation and future generations. This particular story takes place in 1958, with Richard Egan,(Jim Burton) who gradually started drinking and over the years his metabolism went nuts and he hit rock bottom. However, his wife Julie London,(Ellen Burton), loved Jim very much and was patient with him up until a point in their marriage. Unfortunately, everyone suffers when there is a boozer in the family and the only solution is that the victim seeks help on his own and then goes to a Higher Power and gets into a 12 step program. This is basically what this film is about, except the fact that anyone can play the role that Richard Egan played in this picture by just trying to drink himself to death and hurting everyone else around him or her and especially the children growing up, Please stop.
