Natalie has dreamed of being a serious photographer ever since she got her first camera at 8 years old. She aspires to be like her heroine, Annie Leibowitz, and take fabulous soulful pictures. But then she took the picture that would shoot her straight into the world of celebrity culture and the pages of "Heat". Natalie couldn't resist snapping ace footballer Brett Ballentine in a clinch with his childhood sweetheart. Selling the picture to the tabs was a no-brainer. Now she can set herself up with all the best equipment. Poor naive Natalie didn't realise that the media would turn her into a wannabee celebrity monster, falling out of cabs, half cut and half dressed. Nobody's interested in her photography. Natalie's only option is to take a controversial undercover job as a paparazzi, earn enough money to free herself from her devious agent, and resign herself to life in 'ordinaryville' again. On an exclusive beach on location, Nat can't resist capturing beautiful model Jen Jones as she bends to snort a line of coke as the sun sets. When Jen begs her to delete the picture Natalie flashes back to what got her into her mess in the first place. She gives Jen what she wants, and Jen's story begins ...
