This comedy is about Siggy, a teenage girl who lives and works in
Auckland's Red Light District. While her agrophobic roommate
dreams of living in Tibet, Siggy and her fellow sex workers dream
of getting off the streets. After discovering that her pimp is
planning to raise a large sum of cash through a drug deal, Siggy
decides to seize the moment and hijack his money making scheme.
This is not a typical dark New Zealand film - it has many very
humourous moments and even includes a cameo by Lucy Lawless.
