As a result Bill W. and his loving wife Lois (JoBeth Williams) must come to grips with his depression and downward spiraling alcoholism. In Bill's quest for recovery, he forms a support group with fellow alcoholic, Dr. Bob (James Garner), which eventually leads to the formation of Alcoholics Anonymous.
