Fiona visits Paris for the first time to assist her myopic Aunt Martha. Catastrophes ensue, mainly involving Dom, a homeless man who has yet to have an emotion or thought he was afraid of expressing.


There’s a theory that we should be born with a share of alcohol in our blood. That modest intoxication opens our minds to the world around us, diminishing our problems and increasing our creativity. Heartened by that theory, Martin and three of his friends, all tired high school teachers, embark on an experiment to uphold a constant level of intoxication throughout the workday. If Churchill won WW2 in a heavy daze of alcohol, who knows what a few drops might do for them and their students? Initial results are positive and the teachers’ little project is elevated to a genuine academic study gathering results Both their classes and their results continue to improve, and the group feels alive again! As the units are knocked back, the experiment progresses for some and derails for others. It grows increasingly clear that while alcohol may have fueled great results in world history, some bold acts carry consequences.
