Street Love is the relationship between Evette Johnson (an African American teen) and Antonio Cortez (who is hispanic). The two have been going to school together since middle school and couldn't be more different. Evie is determined to be successful in school and leave their east side ghetto to go to college. Tony however, has been living in ghettos his entire life and doesn't think his life will ever amount to more. Will the two of them ever work as a couple? And can Evie convince Tony that there's more to life besides life in the ghetto, getting drunk every night and joining Pandilla?
