Synopsis


Set against the backdrop of Soho's pulsing nightlife, Closer to Heaven tells the story of Dave, a dancer who has freshly arrived from Ireland and desperate to make his name.


Not long after, he finds work as a bartender in an exclusive Soho nightclub, and fits into a rather unconventional family.


Headed up by Billie Trix, a fading rock icon from the Sixties, Vic, the club's gay owner and his daughter Shell, who Dave immediately falls for.


As time goes by however, Dave finds himself lured into the darker, seamier side of London nightlife, he runs the risk of getting lost in drugs and drink; with Shell's help, can he drag himself from the edge and truly discover himself


Darkly comic and ultimately tragic, this ode to an often-overlooked part of London nightlife provides a bittersweet look at broken dreams and desires.
