A WORM IN THE HEART details the extraordinary lives and brave stories of the diverse LGBT+ communities across Russia. Shot in six cities along the Trans-Siberian railway and utilizing intimate interviews about life in Russia today, this documentary features deeply personal and moving accounts from activists and non-activists alike. The film follows queer Irish filmmaker Paul Rice and his boyfriend Liam, as they go under-cover, armed only with two cameras, to meet with the many heroic members of the LGBTQ+ community who risk their lives living authentically under oppressive laws and prejudices — from Nobel Peace prize nominees and international activists to drag queens thriving in remote Siberia.
