In a remote village “behind God’s back” (“even God must have forgotten about it,” the locals crack), Skimma dreams of leaving the only place he’s known to explore the world. When Rebecca tells him she’s pregnant, Skimma is torn between leaving the island and the responsibilities that come with fatherhood. But he has a plan. Taking advantage of skills honed beside a local cheesemaker, Skimma embraces a new profession: village weed supplier. Soon everyone wants what he’s cooking -- even Rastaman Osiris. Meanwhile, Skimma’s distributor arranges a new deal he can’t resist. Faced with providing for a child and keeping his new enterprise away from the law, will Skimma find what he’s searching for?
