Synopsis

Sex, Needles and Roubles takes us on a journey to the cold winter nights of St. Petersburg where we meet with some of its young drug addicted prostitutes. Through poignant real-life stories and interviews with leading figures in the fight against AIDS, corrupt policemen-pimps and discriminating doctors, this documentary seeks to understand how AIDS reached such alarming proportions over the last decade. This is a crisis which has catapulted Russia into being the country with the fastest spreading epidemic of AIDS in the world today.
