The plan was simple: steal the drugs, sell the drugs and get out of town. Sequoyah and Rose are tired of living second-rate lives in the watered-down ghost town they call home. Following the guidance of the mysterious (and possibly hallucinated) Chicken Lady, our heroes come face-to-face with talking animals, a murderous hermit and their bleak futures. This stoner comedy begs the big questions: can you ever truly escape your hometown? Are drugs the answer to our problems, or the cause? Where do guinea pigs come from?
