Flick, Flick, Ahhhhhh…

Jamie Peel is a pothead. He lives in his own world, a bubble, a cloud that calls his name and reaches out to him.

His sister TJ has watched him slowly drift away and doesn't know what to do. Is she overreacting? Is it in her imagination? Should she tell somebody what she sees? Will Jamie ever talk to her again if she does? Will everyone see her as a snitch? Is it just pot?

An emotional tightrope between a sister and a brother and what really happens in the world of teenage marijuana use.
