Shaun reveals his own origins with alcohol – from his self-combusting drunken grandfather to passing out at University & becoming a teetotaller. Then he explores why drinking is so ingrained in Australian culture. From the rum rebellion to sport and the movies. Following a wild night at a country B&S ball he comes to understand the social bonding drinking brings, but after meeting an alcoholic with a transplanted liver he wonders if it’s worth the cost.
