Way down the island countryside (or “Behind God’s Back”, as the locals call it)…
Tired of monotonous village life, Skimma dreams of seeing something different. But notwithstanding his constant complaints about his small village, after receiving the news that he has gotten Rebecca pregnant, Skimma comes up with a plan. Taking advantage of skills honed alongside a tourist man and cheesemaker, Skimma embraces a new profession: the village weed supplier. It quickly becomes evident that everyone wants what he’s selling – even local Rastaman Osiris. Skimma is faced with making some money to provide for his new child and keeping his business out of the reach of the law.
