This is a love story, a sad story of a married woman falling by the wayside of a high stress job on the Stock Market, bolstering her work with long secret shots of whisky. Slowly but surely her life crumbles apart, and her husband fails miserably in his serious attempts to cure someone who doesn't want to be cured. It all comes to an embarrassing head when she loses her breakfast, and everything else at her daughter's eighteenth birthday party.
Suddenly the love gates open and father and daughter realize how much they need each other.
A poignant love affair ensues over the years, and the surprising thing is it cures her mother.
