SCARLET ROAD is a thought provoking documentary that follows the work of Australian sex worker, Rachel Wotton. Impassioned about freedom of sexual expression and the rights of sex workers, she specializes in a long over-looked clientele – people with disability.  Rachel’s clients include those stricken with Multiple Sclerosis and Cerebral Palsy.  Although limited physically, they still possess the universal human desire for companionship and affection.  Rachel’s philosophy, that human touch and sexual intimacy can be some of the most therapeutic aspects to our existence, makes a dramatic impact on the lives of her clients.   

While Rachel’s clients give a glimpse into their sexual self-discovery, SCARLET ROAD follows Rachel as she strives to increase awareness and access to sexual expression for people with disability.  Through a revealing look at the relationships between Rachel and her clients, SCARLET ROAD provides insights that seek to challenge commonly held perceptions regarding the “world’s oldest profession.”
