Men for Sale follows eleven sex-trade workers over the course of a year, recounting their struggles to survive alcohol and drug-related addictions, abuse and stigmatization -- and their troubled pasts. Trapped in a vicious circle of prostitution and drug use, they pursue their hardscrabble lives, knowing their prospects for the future are dim. An unflinching portrait with neither voyeurism nor false sympathy, Men for Sale acknowledges those society prefers to ignore.

Quebec documentary that despite it's promotion, is less about prostitution and more about drug addiction and what happens to you when you hit rock bottom. The guys in this movie are sad and desperate for drugs that not only do they sell their bodies, they also steal and deal drugs. It is sad watching considering most of these men were at one time very good looking. Good looking enough that they could have gone into professional modelling or movies. But the drugs took hold and it shows. Thankfully this documentary is not expoloitative, but just these men telling their stories, and yes, almost every one of them came from abusive childhoods and there are no happy endings for these men.
