Synopsis

When his story about Canadian snipers possibly mutilating corpses in Afghanistan is buried, Luke gets disheartened and quits his job. However, it makes him all the more determined to return to Afghanistan to get the real story.

Through a friend, he's offered a job by a stoner magazine to write a "gonzo" story about the best hashish in Afghanistan. While there, Luke plans to gather enough evidence to get his old story into print. But he soon finds out Afghanistan is an even more dangerous place than when he left and the trip turns into a surreal and perilous adventure.
