"The film mirrors my own learning process of being behind the bar - and making films. What got me excited was listening to bartenders discuss their knowledge and the understanding of where they fit in the historical fabric [of bartending]." [05:00]
"The story of bartending in America is a classic redemption tale." [09:00]
