Too Close to Home, tells the story of a young woman from a modest upbringing who discovers she may have a bright future in Washington D.C.'s fast-paced political scene. When Anna leaves her trailer park home in Alabama in a cloud of dust, she cuts all ties with her family and buries every element of her checkered past. Her friends in Washington think she comes from a wealthy family and know nothing of her real upbringing. Suddenly, the real Anna is exposed when she causes a major political scandal and makes national headlines for her part in an affair with one of the nation's most powerful players. With nowhere to turn, she's forced to find sanctuary in the only place she has left - home. Anna's new reality may prove too much for her to handle. Back in the ironically named town of Happy, Alabama, Anna reunites with her controlling mother, Jolene; her sweet yet overburdened sister, Bonnie; and her drug-addicted sister, Shelby. Although she's left behind a mess in D.C., there are serious problems brewing in Happy and Anna is quickly thrown into the drama. She also has to confront unfinished business with her high school sweetheart, Brody. Broken and battered, Anna must ultimately seek help and forgiveness from the same people she abandoned for a "better" life.
