When Sarah, a lonely and deeply troubled woman, inadvertently enters an AA meeting, she is embraced by its members who believe that she too is an alcoholic. What the meeting is all about, she doesn't know... but her motive for going to the community center is to meet face-to-face with Charlie, one of the members who she has seen regularly standing in front of the center adjacent to her window just before what she supposes is some sort of Bible study. She likes the way Charlie moves and the way he smiles. As fate would have it, Sarah and Charlie begin to fall in love. The big question is: Will her continuing attendance at the meeting and her pretense of being an alcoholic weave itself into an entangling web? Will she muster up the courage to tell him, "My name is Sarah, and I'm not an alcoholic," knowing that she may lose him as a result? Written by Anonymous

A lonely woman stumbles into an AA meeting after seeing the group, including a handsome man, gathered outside.
17 June 2009 | by (Houston, TX) – See all my reviews

Really heart-warming, charming, and sweet. This movie restored my faith in Lifetime Movie Network. All the actors are the kind of talented where I didn't even notice how good they were (until I read a previous poster's comment afterward) because they just WERE their characters. And all the characters are rounded and not static. They change and go through problems, feelings, conflicts, etc. It's really easy to watch and get absorbed in because so much of Sarah (and others) is revealed slowly and progressively. You witness the full growth and evolution of her romantic relationship and personal journey. The scenic views of wherever (Vancouver is where it's filmed?) really add to the setting and ambiance, also. Props to Sarah for going to the pound for a dog instead of a breeder (this is in the first 10 minutes or so of the movie). I don't know whether men would like it as much as women, but then again, it did air on Lifetime Movie Network.
