I would love to tell you that alcohol is bad and bloody dangerous, but it doesn’t seem to be just that simple. My mother is an alcoholic, but I own a bar in Berlin.

I observed the stories of Karin, Oli and Rolf and asked myself why it is so hard to keep our hands off the stuff. But any possible answer couldn’t be more complex and more personal.
