"FREE RIDE" is based on filmmaker Shana Betz's real-life upbringing, the 70's set film stars Anna Paquin (who's also a producer) as a struggling single mother who gets an opportunity to support her two girls by breaking into Florida's prosperous pot-smuggling business. "It's just pot," her best friend informs her. However, Paquin's character quickly learns that the game of pot dealing has its fair share of unscrupulous players -- and "nobody rides for free."
In search of a better life for her family and desperate to escape her tumultuous relationship, Christina (Anna Paquin) hastily moves to Florida and enters the dangerous world of the high-stakes underground drug scene. She quickly learns that dealing drugs at the height of South Florida's smuggling heyday has its price. As law enforcement closes in on Christina and her drug operation, she must find a way to salvage the life she has desperately worked to repair before it all comes crashing down.
