Synopsis

Vele can’t afford to buy the expensive medications for his father who has cancer. Desperate, he steals marijuana from some criminals, makes a cake with it and gives it to him, hoping it will reduce his pain. His father’s health miraculously improves, but Vele is suddenly confronted by their neighbors who demand the recipe for the “remedial” cake and by the criminals who want their drugs back. The greatest challenge, however, is to persuade his father that his life is worth living for.
