Will Valentine is a prominent architect who spends much of his life using alcohol to quiet anxiety. When alcohol becomes toxic to him, he makes a valiant attempt to remain sober, but a surge of anxiety weakens his will power and threatens his resolve.

Anxiety medications that might become addictive are frowned on by counselors, yet safer medications either do not relieve his anxiety or they diminish his libido.

Will is at the crossroads when a diary comes into his hands and challenges him to confront his addiction and re-think his position on the power of self control. But he is wary of giving in to a higher power for fear that it will take away his personal freedom.
