About Bill W and Dr Bob

In 1929, famous New York stockbroker Bill Wilson crashes with the stock market and becomes a hopeless drunk. Dr Bob Smith, a surgeon from Ohio, has also been an alcoholic for thirty years, often going in to the operating room with a hangover.

Through an astonishing series of events, the two men are brought together and, realising that "the only thing that can keep a drunk sober is telling his story to another drunk," forge a relationship.
