Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Close to Home is a movie about making a movie. A documentary filmmaker sets out to produce a study of juvenile prostitution in Vancouver. His "star" is young Jillian Fargey, who makes several efforts to escape her sordid street life, but is always compelled to return to solicitation by an unbearable home environment. Another of the documentary's subjects is Daniel Allman, a "been there, done that" veteran of prostitution who ends up at the wrong end of a knife. The free-flowing script was written by the film's producer Harvey Crosland and director Rick Beairsto.
