Synopsis

Ruben Guthrie is on fire. He’s the Creative Director of an advertising agency, he’s engaged to a Czech supermodel and Sydney is his oyster. He pours himself a drink to celebrate, a drink to work and one spectacular night he drinks so much he thinks he can fly. Brendan Cowell's brutally honest comedy about work, family and excess, Ruben Guthrie taps a deep vein and asks – is it un-Australian to refuse a drink? A funny and moving act of revelation about spiralling high, crashing hard and being taken to AA by your mum.
