Terri Slater, a successful professional, has had the week from hell-she’s been arrested for DUI, her partner of three years has decided to end their relationship, and she’s been put on performance probation at work during a major corporate reorganization. When she finds herself handcuffed to the wall of a jail cell after a night of heavy drinking and a lifetime of bad habits, Terri is forced to examine her life and the hard choices ahead. Her close circle of friends no longer know how to help her. She is ashamed to tell her family of her troubles. Alone, Terri undertakes a journey back to her first drink at age fourteen, her first girlfriend, her struggles with Catholic school, the inequities of being a girl, and her relationship with her loving, but dishonest, family. Perseverance, AA and a wise woman named Clara help Terri dismantle the fears at the core of her drinking, and unravel the complexities she’s built into her adult relationships. With humor, honesty and a refreshing lack of self-pity, Twenty-Nine delivers an insightful examination of alcohol abuse and self-discovery, and a story of hope and resilience.
