A duo of wealthy Laguna Beach marijuana growers find themselves up against a notorious Mexican drug cartel after their shared girlfriend is kidnapped.

Chon and Ben, two best friends in Laguna Beach, California who are insanely wealthy off of a potent strain of marijuana imported from Afghanistan after Chon's tour of duty as a Navy SEAL, find their shared girlfriend kidnapped by Mexican cartel enforcer Lado's goons after refusing to enter into a drug-dealing partnership. To that end, they are forced to travel to Mexico on the advice of a corrupt DEA agent, seeking to arrange some sort of deal with a view to their girlfriend's safe return.
