A love story unfolds within the world of daytime television.This 2016 tale of love stretches from Brazil to England. Featuring a blend of jazz, Latin and traditional ballads, it’s a wry, contemporary look at today’s celebrity and story hungry media culture. A young orphaned couple from Rio’s favelas, who are struggling financially with their internet cafe, enter Payback, a paternity TV show in England. The government has privatised paternity claims and Payback aims to track down errant fathers and pay the injured party compensation. But the reality TV show is not quite reality, and the young couple are in danger of being nothing more than a solution to diving ratings, a soft target for the cynical and manipulative host, Matt Matthews, and a distraction to the government’s inability to deal with paternity claims
