| 90 min
| French German

In this neo-noir thriller, set to the soundtrack of Massive Attack's 3D, exiled Jamaican Akilla wants to get out of the weed business with one last big deal. When the Canadian government legalizes marijuana, Toronto-based Akilla wants out of the business. But on his last errand, he stumbles into a robbery by a hostile gang. The robbers escape with the loot, but Akilla manages to capture one of the robbers, a teenager named Sheppard. While trying to retrieve the loot, Akilla recognizes herself in Sheppard. "A very cool, low-key neo-noir with an interesting setting and very engaging lead characters. Saul Williams brings an impressive amount of depth to Akilla." (CG Mag Online)
