Plot

A car driven by a driver intoxicated by marijuana plunges off a cliff, killing the driver and injuring a female passenger.

It turns out marijuana use is rife at a small town high school, led by the clique of Jordan Bates. Art school Phil Blake tries to persuade student Jerry Blackburn not to smoke. Jerry borrows Phil's car and Jordan leaves some marijuana in it. Phil gets arrested for possession of marijuana.

  • Production

    According to Maury Dexter "there was nothing salacious or offensive about" the film "but it did have some provocative scenes that showed the results of overindulging and the risks taken when someone needs 'a fix.'"

    The movie was shot entirely in the Hollywood area. The Dohney Mansion in Beverly Hills was used for some scenes. "The stark beauty of the estate set against the ramblings of a young 'user' was, I thought, quite effective," wrote Dexter later.

    Reception

    Dexter says "the film did very well at the box office, although, it was far from a big hit."
