Directed by Shaka King | 2013

With Amari Cheatom, Trae Harris, Tone Tank, Colman Domingo, Isiah Whitlock Jr., Adrian Martinez

Rent-to-own repo man Lyle and his girlfriend Nina are a Brooklyn couple united through a deep and meaningful love of plants—specifically, the fragrant, desiccated kind that you pack into a pipe and puff on. Dispassionately whiling away their days at their jobs and spending evenings in an amorous haze, the wake-and-bake lovebirds must reevaluate their relationship and their lifestyle after a series of rambling and episodic errors, marked by jealousy and poor judgment. With a vaporous mix of tones and emotional shifts, this stoner comedy cum melodrama is no cautionary tale or screed against (or for) Mary Jane, but is ultimately a bittersweet tale about how this couple deals with life and love once the smoke clears.

Producers: Jim Wareck, Michael Matthews, Shaka King, Gbenga Akinnagbe
Director of Photography: Daniel Patterson
Editor: Kristan Sprague
