Seven lifelong friends from California meet along their journey to adulthood and fall into committed relationships. Andrea and Paul meet after university growing marijuana in the Golden Triangle. Andrea is protected by her dead brother's ghost, who watches over whenever she's in danger. Four of them build a construction company and the other three work in the entertainment industry. Together, they decide to retire, live communally in New Mexico, and grow marijuana and ginger. They are joined by an eighth member along the way to become four couples. Together, they build a homestead, complete with four houses, a greenhouse, yoga studio and cutting shed for their harvest. Relationships are tried and tested by external pressures, which threaten to destroy their communal life. Children and grandchildren come and go to create a dynamic unit. Will their lifestyle turn into a hippy pipedream or a happy ending?
