Growing Op


on Oct 24, 2012

“Growing Op” is about a teenage boy coming of age in a suburban marijuana-growing operation. Sheltered all his life, and home-schooled by loving parents who are also committed neo-hippie criminals, Quinn Dawson yearns to experience the normalcy of the suburban world around him. When his new neighbor Crystal turns out to be the blonde girl of his dreams, Quinn is motivated to rebel against his parents and attend high-school for the first time. But the more Quinn pulls away from his parents’ modest utopia, the more he discovers that the real jungle is not in his living room, but in the distorted values of the suburban status quo. When truths are finally told and counter-cultures collide, everybody does get stoned. (Dir. Michael Melski)
