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. Recommended.
