Pastoral Paranoia
In America where farm life has collapsed and drugs have filled the void, Dickie McDonald’s rural drug empire is threatened when his older brother is forced out of a likewise collapsing California and returns home to vie for power in the family. Soon all except the dotty mother and father are aligned against Dickie, but Dickie who may seem somewhat “slow” is no fool. Conflict ensues.
