When you're a junkie, the money comes and goes - and so does the high. Do relationships stand a chance among addicts? Meet Matt & Tracy and Sebastian & Michelle - two NYC couples looking for love, and fixes, in all the wrong places.

A startlingly candid verité documentary, Dope Sick Love follows two drug-addicted couples as they eke out a bare-bones existence on the streets of NYC, desperately trying to score cash to pay for their next fix.

Catapulting viewers deep inside the extreme existence of these four young addicts - Matt & Tracy and Sebastian & Michelle - the 93-minute film is an unflinching experiential journey, following the couples into apartment buildings, where they shoot up in the corridors and elevators; into public toilets to smoke or inject crack; and onto the mean streets, where they brawl, hustle and prostitute - all the while trying to maintain what's left of their relationships.

The result, executive produced by Emmy®-winning documentary pioneer Jon Alpert, is a graphic, captivating examination of the human need for love and escape - and the virtual impossibility of finding anything more than temporary relief through drugs.
