The true story of the founders of Alcoholics Anonymous

World War I veteran William Wilson has everything: loving wife, good health, Wall Street career - and a "drinking problem." After bottoming out, he meets Bob Smith, an Ohio surgeon with the same "problem." Together they discover a way to stay day at a time. Their triumph would become the world's.

James Woods won a Best Actor Emmy® Award for his no-holds-barred portrayal of Wilson in a powerful true story of how two lives intertwined at a crucial time - and how that friendship led to the formation of Alcoholics Anonymous. With over 100,000 chapters worldwide, the work of Wilson and Smith (James Garner) goes on everywhere, day at a time. JoBeth Williams and Gary Sinise also star in this moving and memorable story.
