Devi is an aging but legendary breeder of pot strains who over decades has built a business on her remote homestead in beautiful Humboldt County, CA. But now that cannabis is legal, she finds herself in a fight for survival. Krisha Fairchild embodies the role of Devi in a tour-de-force performance. Shot on off-the-grid pot farms, Pittsburgh-based producer Laura Heberton and directors Mario Furloni and Kate McLean offer up an authentic and emotionally charged thriller.
