Is a celebrity entitled to privacy or are they fair game for feeding time at the tabloid zoo?
Deep in the bowels of a tabloid newspaper office, the clock is ticking with only an hour left before the presses have to roll.
A controversial photo of a topless children's TV star has mysteriously turned up. Who sent it? Why? And is it really all it seems? This sensational photo poses a moral conundrum, exposing deceit, lies and a darker secret that mustn't be revealed at any cost.
"Damages" is a witty and contemporary (im)morality tale of power-hungry hacks, suicidal sub editors and razor-sharp lawyers, trying to put the past and the paper to bed.
