An underpaid train mechanic gives his father a cake made of stolen marijuana to relieve his cancer pain, but he is cornered by the criminals who are searching for their drugs and the nosy neighbors who want a recipe for the "healing" cake.

THE SECRET INGREDIENT is a universal story of a downtrodden man having to make do with few resources. Vele works in a train yard but hasnt been paid in weeks, even though his bosses continue to collect paychecks. So when his dad's cancer begins to get worse, Vele must find a way to get the medication he can't afford. Luck comes in mysterious ways, and for Vele its in the form of a pound of weed he finds in one of the abandoned trains in his yard. Using the herbal drug to make cake, Vele finds his pot pastry has a positive effect on his unwitting father, curing the cancer and drawing the attention of nearly everyone in town including the drug dealers whose stash Vele found. A dark comedy without any of the stoner comedy nonsense, THE SECRET INGREDIENT is a delicious film about the lengths well go to make things right and the pitfalls of making highly effective pot cake in a town full of people looking for healing.
