A higher calling.

Cheated by her stealing, polygamist husband of 17 years, once high-flying corporate executive Christine Meeusen flees penniless with her three young children. She finds her calling in a most unexpected place: as the founder of a medicinal-marijuana empire called Sisters of the Valley. Her mission is to provide her products to those in need while fighting the interests of the country sheriff and deadly black market thieves.

All of this could have made a fun ninety minutes, but somehow the film doesn't hang together that well.

This is where the film falls down. It's not enough for Ryan just to show us the weirdness. He needed to stay longer, to answer some of the questions he raises.

Los Angeles Times

It's a stirring, unusually inspiring tale.

Hollywood Reporter

The story is a potentially interesting one, but it's told here in such scattershot, disjointed fashion that one can barely follow it.

This potentially engrossing and timely story is, like so many of its participants, mostly wasted.

A little more nuance and historical depth would have been welcome, but this will be serviceable entertainment when it gets to streaming, as long as viewers have a supply on hand.
