Weedestine is a revenge pulp thriller that tells the story of Abbas, a self-righteous, middle-aged car mechanic living in Palestine’s lawless Area-C, where marijuana cultivation thrives. When Abbas’ older son is killed at an Israeli checkpoint, a desire for revenge consumes him, pushing Abbas to venture a plan that eventually gets muddled by his younger son’s involvement in the marijuana trade. By turning to genre, Weedestine aims to explore the difficulty of making moral choices in the twisted environment of Occupied Palestine.
