Dov (79), a widower, is forced by his family to move to a nursing home, and there’s nothing he can do or say about it. He’s broke since he lost his pension savings, and he blames the state. The nursing home feels like a prison, and all Dov can think about is getting out, buying his old house back, and living there until he dies. When he notices that all his fellow residents smoke legal medical cannabis, he realizes that weed can be his salvation – selling it, not smoking it. However, love, cops and gangsters come into play, and Dov finds himself at a crossroads: Will he risk it all to make his dream come true?
