A pot-dealing teenager from a broken home resorts to selling heroin in order to pay his six year old sister's tuition to a private school and save her from wandering the same destructive path in life. Jimmy Donovan hails from a diverse suburban neighborhood. His mother is a hopeless drug addict who's incapable of caring for herself much less two children, and when she's hospitalized Jimmy suddenly finds himself faced with some truly difficult decisions. Up to this point, Jimmy has earned enough cash to support his family by selling pot around the neighborhood, but now circumstances demand that he move on to more profitable endeavors. But while making the leap from marijuana-dealer to heroin-hustler is no easy decision for Jimmy, he's determined to give his innocent sister Angie a fighting chance in life. As the situation spirals into disaster, Jimmy quickly begins to realize just how high the stakes have been raised. The feature directorial debt of high school senior Matt Mitchener, Love. Blood. Kryptonite pulls no punches in dealing with a wide variety of weighty issues faced by contemporary teenagers.
