A documentary that takes the viewer to the Moroccan highlands and shows all the steps from planting the seeds to harvest and preparation of haschisch.
Up in the mountains, whole villages live of the small profits made by growing herbs and producing haschisch. The movie lets us meet them and follow them to work. We get to see them work in the treshing process in which the flowers are crushed and pressed through a sieve, how the powder is compressed into chunks and packaged for export and consumption.
We also get to see a whole lot of stoned mountain people, happy, but probably with rather black lungs, do other work, play and socialize. All in all an interesting documentary where we for instance learn that it takes 100kg of plants to produce 1kg of super high grade haschisch and a couple of kilos of second and third grade stuff. Muy interesting. Recommended.
