Storyline

Johnathan is a nine-year-old boy who loves sea monsters, and his 300 lb. pet pig, named Wee Wee. Unlike most kids, Johnathan has nystagmus, which makes his eyes "flutter." He also suffers from severe narrow angle glaucoma; an acute condition that if untreated can lead to permanent blindness. JoLynn cares for Johnathan alone while her singer/songwriter husband David travels in search of his big break. To treat Johnathan, she grows hydroponic marijuana to relieve the painful intraocular pressure Glaucoma causes. She cooks the marijuana into brownies and feeds them to him in secret. David's parents, Mark and Linda, live nearby and provide for JoLynn and Johnathan as best they can on a fixed income. Linda is highly critical of JoLynn's ability to raise Johnathan. During her son's absence, Johnathan has become more undisciplined than Linda would like. While Mark tries to keep the peace, he is torn between his wife and their daughter-in-law, who he loves deeply. When JoLynn discovers that ... Written by Anonymous

this is about life and its struggles
19 April 2016 | by (180 degrees) – See all my reviews

Unlike other biased reviews from privileged women who have choices in life and chose wrong and are bitter, this review is about the movie.

This movie is shown from more than one view.

It's about a boy living with an illness in poverty living like all is normal like a child his age does.

It's about a mother trying to get by with what she knows.

It's about family trying to help them cope with little resources to help.

This movie shows struggles in life common to rural America that society left behind.

One should go into this movie with a clean slate and watch bit for what it is.

It is a simple movie not trying to wow, to prove anything, or to win anything. It just tells a story about the life of people that are born and made everyday due to aa steamroller society that chooses to ignore the have nots.
