"Call Me: The Rise and Fall of Heidi Fleiss" synopsis/plot

A prominent doctor's daughter, Heidi, becomes a high-class call girl for a Hollywood madam. She learns all of the tricks of the trade and later betrays her boss by going in to business for herself. Before long, Heidi is running the most successful call-girl escort ring in Hollywood, until her world comes crashing down.

The true story made headlines in the early 1990's, when a young woman was arrested for running a call-girl ring in Los Angeles. According to court documents, Heidi Lynne Fleiss ran a high-class prostitution-escort business catering to the Hollywood elite. The Heidi Fleiss money laundering/tax evasion trial of 1995 became a media sensation and has been the inspiration for several call-call movies. Fleiss was eventually sentenced to 37 months in prison.
