Alcohol drinking in the family is a curse. Alcohol drinking in three generation leads to damnation.
Dr. Jack Murano tries to prevent his son, Mike, from becoming a third-generation alcoholic. Starting from seemingly innocent sip of champagne drank from an ice hockey trophy, through peer pressure during the high school parties, and drinking through the wild college years, Dr. Murano saw it all, since he went through the same stages himself. Now he will do anything to prevent Mike from retracing his steps. But he’s losing the fight with his son’s merciless addiction.
Finally, at the ends of his mental and physical powers of understanding and tolerance, he throws his beloved son out of his house, the move which is going to weigh heavily of the Muranos’ fate as a family. The line he wishes he’d never crossed.
