Description: Located on the far North Coast of California and on the margins of society is a region nicknamed "The Lost Coast" but geographically known as Humboldt County. It is there, amongst the state's breathtaking Redwood forests that marijuana farmers co-exist peacefully within the rural community. It is there that Peter Hadley, a promising but tightly-wound UCLA med student, finds himself stranded when he's deposited at the multi-generational family home of the free-spirited Bogart, following a drunken one-night stand. Frustrated and disillusioned with his life after his professor/father fails him on an important exam, the unworldly Peter at first rejects the welcoming yet eccentric pot-smoking strangers, along with their eclectic group of friends and fellow farmers, but soon allows himself to be embraced by their ideals and begins to see life a bit clearer: despite the smoke.
