Kostya Proletarsky, a drug user and HIV/AIDS activist, died of tuberculosis on 19 July 2009, in Botkin Hospital, in St. Petersburg. His early death was caused by torture at Penal Colony no. 4, in Karelia, and from being denied medical treatment. In Russia, treatment for drug use is almost completely inaccessible, and most commonly, users are sent to prison as a “solution”. These institutions offer no cure, on the contrary, they have caused the deaths of several people in need of treatment. This hand-drawn animation documentary uses original interviews with Kostya and his mother, Irina, to raise awareness of inhuman prison conditions.
