Amari Cheatom and newcomer Trae Harris star in this bittersweet blend of comedy and drama that tells the story of polar opposites Lyle (Cheatom) and Nina (Harris) - a repo-man and a flower child whose bond is forged and frayed by their mutual adoration and voracious consumption of cannabis.

Jim WareckMichael MatthewsShaka King and Gbenga Akinnagbe are all producers.

It was one of 10 feature films selected by the Sundance Institute for the first-ever NEXT WEEKEND film festival (an extension of the popular NEXT <=> section at the Sundance Film Festival), which took place from August 8-11, at Sundance Sunset Cinema and additional venues throughout Los Angeles.
