A young hood desperately has to clear his debts by selling drugs, with only his aged and very grumpy nan to help.

George, a pretty incompetent low-level pot dealer, has been given 24 hours by local thugs to pay back his debts. What’s worse is that today’s the day he’s supposed to take care of his grumpy old nan Nelly Forced to drag her to her favourite pastime, attending funerals where she can heckle the bereaved, George struggles to find a solution while hiding the truth from Nelly. But as time runs out, George may have no other option but to enlist his nan to help deal drugs in order to save his skin.
