Based on his own experiences of waking up in jail without even knowing how he got there, and those of a friend from his 12 step group who lived with the guilt of having hit a family of four while drunk driving, the aim of the film is to help those who are ready to be helped and to encourage those that are not ready to reconsider their options.
Timmy gets across the pain, anguish and regret felt by a drunk driver responsible for causing the death of others. But is this really going to resonate with people who regularly drink and drive? In my experience, one of the special skills of drunk drivers is denial, the ability to tell themselves that it won't happen to them.
So does this film have the desired effect? If you watched it and it made you think twice about drinking and driving, please leave a comment.
