Synopsis


Robbie is overwhelmed when he held his newborn son Luke for the first time.
He swears that Luke will not lead the same stricken life he has. On community
service he meets Rhino, Albert and Mo. Little did he imagine that turning to drink
might change their lives – not cheap wine, but the best malt whiskies in the world.
What will it be for Robbie? More violence or a new future? Only the angels know.
______________
Robbie est bouleversé quand il tient son fils Luke pour la première fois entre
ses mains. Il jure que Luke ne mènera pas la même vie affligeante que lui.
Mais Robbie rencontre, lors d’un service communautaire, Rhino, Albert et Mo.
Il n’avait pas imaginé que se tourner vers l’alcool – les meilleurs whiskies purs
malts du monde non pas le vin bon marché – pourrait changer leur vie.
Qu’adviendrat-il de Robbie? Encore plus de violence ou un nouvel avenir?
Seuls les anges ont la réponse.
