Description

To break the monotony, frustration and loneliness of the road, many truck drivers in INDIA rely on casual relationships with women in the truck stops and villages along their routes. Highway in My Veins: Truckers in India is a one-hour documentary film which poignantly illustrates the life of truckers in India and their growing vulnerability to AIDS. Over many years, entire communities along the most frequented routes have turned sex work into a flourishing industry, but use of condoms is rare and these highways are the breeding grounds of the AIDS epidemic. Sadly, it is estimated that more than three hundred thousand truckers in India are infected with AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases.
