Synopsis

A contemporary urban satire set during a week in the life of a tabloid newspaper. Its tyrannical tycoon chairman and clever but desperate editor (who is also sleeping with the chairman's wife) battle for political supremacy in the boardroom, using staff journalists as pawns in the power-games they play out on the front pages of the press. Set against the backdrop of the US election and the current celebrity culture, Rag Tale gives a witty, behind-the-scenes look at the tabloids.
