Synopsis:
In an emergency room the lives of four groups of people intersect and are forever changed not by their encounter but by their mutual
appreciations for marijuana. … A Middle-Eastern female college student has to deal with the day-to-day challenges while attempting to get her chronic pained father to consider medicinal marijuana as a treatment.
… A preppy white male has almost reached rock bottom and attempts to get off of hard drugs and still keep his sanity. … A young Black male and his pregnant girlfriend try to cope with the everyday difficulties of life in the inner city. … An Indian ER doctor decompresses after a hard day at work, before his corporate fiancé heads off to a day full of boring meetings. … A 30-something Latino couple survives a near-death bout with their newborn. … This multiple storyline narrative is not always reverent but remains a true anecdotal reveal into the world of people who live their lives with marijuana.
