In a tiny village located deep in the mountains of Ketama, North Morocco, the lives of the people have been intricately tied in with the drug hashish for centuries. In addition to serving as everything from a bartered good to the basis and philosophy of an entire social system, hashish is also both the foundation of dreams for the citizens and the reason for stagnation within the community. This is not only a portrait of people whose very livelihood is forever intertwined with hashish, but a microscopic look at a community whose controversial foundation is at odds with the priorities and laws of an increasingly globalized world.
