the Film

A lunchtime Alcoholics Anonymous meeting is in session at the historic John Street Methodist Church in the financial district of downtown New York City.  Bill, a highly successful Wall Street stockbroker and atheist, encounters a mysterious presence at the A.A. meeting who catapults him down a rabbit hole of repressed memories, regret and ultimately toward self acceptance. After being arrested for his second DUI in which he injured an 8-year old girl and critically injured her father, Bill is faced with an urgent choice:  continue to follow his current life philosophy, or accept a higher power that might save his life.  Which will he choose?
