Plot – In Cornwall the quiet life of Grace is shocked by the sudden death of her husband John. The woman discovers the man used to betray her and has left her in a bad financial situation. She now has to earn quickly some money and her gardener Matthew has the right idea: as Grace is an excellent gardener too, she can cultivate marijuana. The first plants grow soon and she goes to London to sell the product to a professional French drug dealer. When she returns home, Grace finds her fellow citizens in her greenhouse enjoining the weed, but she burns it as the police officers arrive and the powerful scent causes a sort of general ecstasy. To raise the lost money, Grace writes a book about her adventure and marries the French and charming drug dealer.
