There is an obscure philosophical theory that humans should have been born with a small amount of alcohol in our blood. This modest inebriation would allow us to open our minds, diminish our problems, and increase our creativity.
Martin and his three friends, all weary high school teachers, decide to test this theory by maintaining a constant level of intoxication throughout their workday. They hope to unshackle their growing midlife crises and learn to live life as better versions of themselves. Initial results are positive, but as the number of units increase, so do the stakes, and they soon learn that bold acts carry severe consequences.
Winner of Best International Feature Film at the Oscars, and nominated for Best Director, Another Round is a black comedy bringing you the highs of boisterous revelry, and the lows of heavy hangovers.
