What is Closer to Heaven about?

Narrated by retired rock icon Billie Trix, Closer to Heaven follows the reunion of Vic and Shell, an estranged father and daughter.

Vic abandoned his family to run a successful gay nightclub, now years later, his child walks across the dance floor, ready to re-establish their relationship. However, with drugs and unrequited love taking centre stage at Vic’s Club, it isn’t always easy to play happy families…
