ABOUT UNDER THE INFLUENCE
The film title, UNDER THE INFLUENCE stems from the colloquial term “13th step”. This term applies when a 12-step old-timer hits on a newcomer with less than a year of sobriety. It can be for a variety of reasons: emotional, financial, or physical. But either way, it’s someone in a position of power trying totake advantage of someone weaker. In this film, a woman’s life is thrown into a dangerous tailspin after ending an affair with the dangerous lover she met in Alcoholics Anonymous (AA).
