After Blair Wilson once again loses her battle for custody of her daughter Chloe due to her drinking and undisciplined lifestyle, she goes to a bar to forget everything and ends up dying from hitting her head on a railing while dancing. Judge Othniel argues that Blair still lives in denial about her drinking problem, and that she still blames her mother for the death of her boyfriend Kevin. But when Blair shows more care for her daughter than for herself the Judge sends her back as a social worker. Her first case is her own alcoholic mother, and Blair tries to get her to stop drinking so that the car crash that killed Kevin would never happen. But she doesn't want to see that her younger self is an alcoholic and that her drinking will also have disastrous results.moreless
