For his film Between Dope and Love, filmmaker Roy Dames followed the heroin addict Klaas and his Moroccan girlfriend Narcis for two years. Klaas is proud of his muscular body, which enables him to pay for his habit by prostituting himself to men. This has given him an independent life. As long as he makes his money solely from men, Narcis does not mind his work. She is thankful to him for easing her away from her Moroccan parents. She does everything to get Klaas off drugs. Because for his dope he does not shrink from car theft and devises a plan to extract a large sum of money from one of his clients, a member of the Dutch Lower Chamber. Dames follows Klaas and Narcis in their footsteps with his camera, making a probing portrait of the life of a drug addict and his girlfriend.
