    • Synopsis
    • Pot dealing kid Luke Shapiro is trying to figure out how to solve his parents’ insolvency, beat depression, and get laid before pushing off to college.
      Luckily he’s got a deal with a psychiatrist, Dr Squires, who trades therapy sessions for grass. It happens that the doctor’s marriage is crumbling, so the two – one in late adolescence, the other in late middle age – embark on a passage into new life stages. As Luke falls for a classmate who just happens to be Squires’s daughter, the summer heats up, he follows the doctor’s orders, learning to coexist with pain and make it part of himself, rather than let it become his downfall.
