Produced for the Caterpillar Tractor Company by Dallas-based Bill Stokes Associates, this film warns of the potential risks inherent in consuming alcohol. To illustrate its point, the film compares a bi-plane wing walker – a man who stands on the wing of a bi-plane in flight - to people on the ground drinking, or "wing walking" with alcohol. It also provides strategies for people to protect themselves from excessive drinking, as well as tips for what to do if a person suspects that he or she is developing an alcohol problem.

Formed in 1965, Bill Stokes Associates – later to be known as The Stokes Group - was a Dallas based production company that made industry and promotional films for a range of clients spanning from Mary Kay Cosmetics to the United States Navy. In 1966, Bill Stokes Associates, provided sound stage and production services for the film "Bonnie and Clyde." Bill Stokes has been honored by the Dallas Producers Association with a Film Pioneer Award.
