HIGH ON THE HOG, is an independent film about the struggle and triumphs of the modern cash crop farmer. Big Daddy (Sid Haig), a man larger than life, lives on his farm in a small mid-western town. In order to survive his trying times he started growing pot to save his family farm and to overcome the hardships in his life. During his road to excess, he delivers his product to the city and begins to adopt some strays that move to his farm to help him with his crop. Little does Big Daddy know the biggest challenge in his life still lies ahead. On a wild run to the city his girls have an encounter that will change all their lives. His “drug cartel” is now a target of trigger-happy federal agents from the big city. With the help of his trusted friends and townspeople Big Daddy’s family uses sex, drugs and rock n roll to make a stand and avoid the long arm of the law.
Starring Sid Haig, Joe Estevez, and Robert Z'Dar.
"With a potent strain of pot sweeping the city of Chicago, DTA agent Lucy goes undercover in the rural town of Hickory to stop the drug production at its source. But she never expects to find an aging farmer named Big Daddy, who just wants to save his land from foreclosure, and his lovely trio of farmhands: Laura, Lola, and Lenore. As they open her eyes to life outside the big city, relentless agent Dick brings the fury of the DTA leading the charge to "rescue" Lucy and take down the farmers by any means necessary."
