My father is 35 years sober, and has always been honest about the ups and downs of his journey. ’50 mL,’ explores a story he told me, wherein his many years of sobriety allowed him not to relapse. I imagined how someone younger and more newly sober may not be able to overcome the situation in the same way, and how the intersection of family and holiday stress may have a ripple effect with lasting consequences.
