Film/Episode Summary: David is a small pot dealer that just got robbed of a week’s worth of profit. David’s dealer forces him to go to Mexico to pick up a large supply of marijuana to make up for the loss. David things ahead and tries to create a plan to make him look less suspicious at the border. He asks his neighbor Rose, who is a broke stripper, and two teenagers, Casey and Kenny, that live in the area. In exchange for their assistance, he plans on paying them some of the profits. The four embark on a journey as a pretend family to collect marijuana for David’s dealer.
Comments or Recommendations for Teaching: Even though David and Rose aren’t real parents, in what way are they parents, or influences, to Casey and Kenny?
