Bradley allows his fame to take over his life and he is caught by the paparazzi videographer in shady situations which ultimately lead to a major confrontation and shocking conclusion.

The Story Behind the Story

Celebrities’ lives are increasingly documented by paparazzi to the point where it is nearly impossible in today’s America for a celebrity to have a private life or keep secrets.

This short film is intended to be a view into the potential consequences of stripping individual privacy and exposing dirty laundry, as well as what could happen while leading a deceitful life.
