Storyline

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 New York City couples looking for love, and fixes, in all the wrong places. This startlingly candid documentary follows these two drug-addicted couples as they eke out a bare-bones existence on the streets of New York, desperately trying to score cash to pay for their next fix. The result is an unflinching, captivating examination of the human need for love and escape--and the virtual impossibility of finding anything more than temporary solace. Written by Anonymous

Really Good but also Really Sad...
23 December 2015 | by lizzyblueyezSee all my reviews

This is such a depressing movie but it's a very well made movie capturing the lives of 2 drug addict couples day in and night. It shows what they go thru and how they survive on the streets chasing that high they can't live without.Made me really sad them waste their lives that way.But then everyone makes their own choices in life and unfortunately they all chose the life of drug abuse and homelessness-even crime. I think all young people (high school age) should see this film and I bet it would be a complete eye-opener. I've watched the film now 2 times. That's how well done it is. It's very very gritty and real and maybe some might think some scenes go too far, or are too graphic. That just makes it a better film. I wonder if Mr.Alpert will do a follow up film. To see where the people featured ended up.
