A 16-old girl runs away from a dangerous man and gets into a faraway village near the border. Soon she finds out the only inhabitants there - nine old men and women - make their living by growing marijuana and the village is actually an illegal plantation belonging to the man she runs away from. However, she decides to stay there and nothing remains the same. A girl is afraid of her past, both disgusting and attracting her. She is afraid of her present, both suffocating her and giving her wings. And she is afraid of the future as it projects both her nightmares and her dreams. This film is about the only 'bullet against fear' - love. Written by

A very slight, somewhat nonsensical movie about an orphan 16 year-old girl who runs away from her sugardaddy after becoming pregnant by him. She ends up in a village in the middle of nowhere and proceeds to charm the pot-growing locals with her youthful vigor.
Shot on video on an obviously low budget, the film pulls out some funny moments from the cultural clashes between the villagers and the headstrong young girl.
Other than that there's really no story to speak of and the editing is so slapdash that you really do have to be as high as the villagers (and obviously the filmmakers) in order to avoid a headache. Still it does have some scruffy charm and some real offbeat humour.
