Heidi Fleiss: Hollywood Madam is a documentary chronicling the rise and fall of infamous Madam Heidi Fleiss. Fleiss began working under Madam Alex when she was 22, managing a prostitution ring, and a few short years later, branched off to run her own. The documentary gives insight into her power struggle with Madam Alex, who Fleiss has said she was like a daughter to, but "a daughter she loved and hates, so she was abusive and loving at the same time." Fleiss was very successful as a madam, making a million dollars in one month, and other pimps and madams became envious of Heidi's success, which is why she suspects she began to be under investigation. Fleiss also struggled against her former lover Ivan Nagy, who was involved in prostitution and had an unhealthy and co-dependent relationship with Heidi. Heidi went on to struggle with substance abuse, various charges against her including pandering and tax evasion, and a very public media presence.moreless
