Brian Marquez was murdered on a San Francisco street corner in 2005. Since that day, his father Luis has been on a quest to find the killers that took his son. "Close to Home" follows the story of a father broken by the loss of his son, and a daughter waiting for the father that she once had. Through his passionate advocacy to find the murderer of his son, Luis Marquez has lost sight of his family. The Marquez family now suffers the absence of a father, along with the brutal loss of a son. Luis' daughter, Norma, expounds on the fragile mind-state of her father and their tenuous relationship as she sets up an altar, welcoming Brian's spirit back into the house on the traditional Mexican holiday 'the Day of the Dead' or El Dia de los Muertos. "Close to Home" employs a haunting score, combined with striking black and white imagery to frame this story of a father trying to find a way to continue with life and to become the father he wants to be again.
