A chemist, university researcher barely earning a living, is fired. After meeting a student of his, he learns the street value of drugs. He then designs a "non-illegal" drug and starts selling it with a group of friends, PhD holders working menial jobs and underpaid. Things get complicated when they earn too much money, get noticed, and their business is frowned-upon by a big drug dealer named "Murena"... Written by dw-benini

User Reviews

 
amazing fresh comedy
13 February 2019 | by lruellaSee all my reviews

This is an amazing and super funny Italian comedy. I am very hard to please and recently I just could not bear the terrible drop in the quality of overall movies. This one is clever, original, funny, incredibly paced, well filmed and with an amazing script.

It's the first one in a trilogy, so don't miss out also the other 2 chapters.
