Alex and Philip are two lazy friends who spend their lives smoking weed. One day they have the same dream with Jesus in it and come up with an idea to create their own religion. They call it 'Banana' and convince people that there is a god in a banana. The religion is spread by word of mouth and contrary to their expectations, they succeed in getting a lot of money from their followers. While Philip sees the new religion as a business, Alex starts believing in it.
