What's the story of The Dry House?

The story of The Dry House follows sisters Chrissy and Claire, as they attempt to overcome the devastating impact of alcoholism on their family. In County Down, Ireland, Chrissy promises Claire that after one final drink she will go to the Dry House to get sober, but Claire doubts she means it this time.
