They say love conquers all, but can love survive on the streets of New York City? For drug-addicted couples like Matt and Tracy, and Sebastian and Michelle, the dream of romance must endure the reality of a desperate unending cycle of fixes, withdrawals, brawls and hustles.
The America Undercover documentary DOPE SICK LOVE tells the stories of these two couples. Cinematographers, Brent and Craig Renaud spent 18 months on the streets to capture the raw reality in a frightening and compelling you-are-there style. The special is executive produced by 11-time Emmy® winner Jon Alpert (HBO’s “High on Crack Street: Lost Lives of Lowell”).
