A Worm In The Heart details the lives and stories from the LGBTQ+ community across Russia. Shot in six cities along the Trans-Siberian Railway, this documentary details the current state of the Russian queer community - giving both broad societal overviews and deeply personal accounts from activists and non-activists alike. The film follows Paul Rice and Liam Jackson Montgomery, a gay couple from Ireland, as they travel on the Trans-Siberian Railway, meeting with a diverse range of LGBT+ people-from Nobel Peace prize nominees and drag queens to those who have suffered brutal homophobic and transphobic attacks.

A Worm In The Heart provides a deep look at the lives of the LGBTQ+ community in Russia… The most inspiring element is seeing hope by those being interviewed that their lives will get better. "I think that now in Russia, and maybe in all post-Soviet countries, it'll take a lot of time for us, but we're following our own path," said one person being interviewed. This film is a must-watch for anyone interested in an inside look of the lives of LGBTQ+ people in all parts of Russia.” - Lauren Bray, Equal Eyes
