LONG SYNOPSIS :
Jay and Victoria lead a good life on Long Island. Jay is content selling weed, not willing to risk their future with harder, but more lucrative drugs. When his childhood friend Alex shows up to pay off a debt, Jay uses the money to secure one hundred pounds of product. Unfortunately for him, Alex’s money was stolen from Vuk, a ruthless Serbian gangster.
Although he hits the streets to collect his outstanding debt, he winds up with a little cash and a lot of blood on his hands. Running out of time, Victoria feeds him a plan. They travel upstate to rob a handicapped drug dealer. What was supposed to be an easy score turns into more violence and they come away with a dozen pounds of moldy weed. Options low, Jay arranges to sell the moldy weed to two Hasidic gangsters, who he robs of their cash. Although he now has enough to pay Vuk, Jay still has two days to spare and will be left with nothing. So he decides to spend it all on high-risk, high-reward MDMA; resigned to his cowboy lifestyle.
