Life isn't going smoothly for Leo Jackson. He still lives at home, he just broke up with his girlfriend and he's had so many complaints about his sloppy work habits that his own mother is threatening to fire him. But Leo isn't one to let a few bad breaks ruins his day-as long as he's got plenty of weed to take his mind off his troubles. But when the wacked-out courier accidentally delivers a box containing 10 kilos of high quality cocaine to the wrong apartment, it sets in motion a hilarious and harrowing chain of events that could cost him his life.

Starring in the film is Mike Epps, Donald Faison, Wood Harris and Mos Def.
