Weed has been legal there for Rastafarians since 2023, and beautiful cannabis strains also grow on the tropical islands.

Actually, it’s more of a way of life than a religion. But anyway, they do have a church community called the Rastafari Church of Antigua and Barbuda, and that’s what this film is about.
