Scarlet Road follows the life of Australian sex worker Rachel Wotton. Impassioned about the rights of sex workers and freedom of sexual expression, she specialises in clients with disability. Rachel’s philosophy, that human touch and sexual intimacy can be some of the most therapeutic aspects to our existence, is making a dramatic impact on the lives of her clients. John, for example, was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis 26 years ago. Before meeting Rachel his mobility was virtually nil; but now he has regained body movement he thought was lost forever. Mark, a client with Cerebral Palsy, is confined to a wheelchair and speaks through an electronic communication board. Thanks to Rachel, Mark has come to love his body. He has always dreamt of falling asleep with a woman and waking up beside her in the morning.
