This is one of a handful of ABC Afterschool Special presentations produced to heighten awareness of Ala-Teen, an organization for the teenaged children of alcoholics. Although 16-year-old Cindy (Amanda Wyss) is all too aware that her mom is a problem drinker, the girl refuses to admit the fact and is violently opposed to joining Ala-Teen. But after her inebriated mom's shameful public behavior on prom night, Cindy realizes that something must be done -- and fast. Produced by Martin Tahse, himself the son of an alcoholic father, the Emmy Award-winning She Drinks a Little has been released to VHS in a 30-minute version titled First Step.
