The Plot of Sober:

On the day his first child is born, Dan (Dean Smith) decides to have a swift pint with his best friend Ant (Tom Gibbons)  before he goes to the hospital to see girlfriend and son. Halfway down the pint, all hell breaks loose, and Dan and Ant are thrown into a comedy adventure that involves beers, clowns, gangsters, Marcelo Bielsa, sister-in-laws on the war path, icebergs, double dishwashers, and an imaginary Jockey handing out tips on a no chance horse called Dancer.

Wetting the baby’s head will never be the same again.
