Der Letzte Tropfen

A Film by Sascha Zimmermann

Synopsis

THE LAST DROP
Once a week, a group of strangers meet to talk about their addiction. An addiction so great that it compels total strangers to sit in a room to talk and begrudgingly support each other. Their good efforts to stay on the ‘straight and narrow’ path are challenged when Dennis accidently joins their group. All of them have to ask themselves a question, do they have their addiction under control?
