Synopsis

GROWING OP is a provocative dramatic comedy about a teenage boy coming of age in a suburban grow-operation, where every day is either paradise or fresh hell. But it's always a trip. Sheltered all his life and home-schooled by loving parents who are also committed neo-hippie criminals, Quinn Dawson is a lonely kid who yearns to experience the normalcy of the suburban world around him. When his new neighbor Crystal turns out to be the blonde girl of the his dreams, Quinn is motivated to rebel against his parents and attend high-school for the first time.
