Papparazzi is a paparazzo with a difference. Having relinquished his contract with a newspaper, his decision to work freelance pays dividends, financially and in a host of adrenalin-charged experiences. The grandfather with trademark sailor-style scarf is ready for action 24/7 and thrives on responding at short notice to all manner of assignments. No celebrity is safe from his prying lens as a variety of stealth tactics and disguises is deployed to ensure the right images are captured. From the Prime Minister himself to sports stars, pop icons and TV personalities, all are fair game as Papparazzi travels across Finland and abroad in response to clients' demands for photos. Even a world-famous secretive graffiti artist employs his services. Compromising situations involving ladies' underwear, a golden toilet seat and abduction by a disenchanted rock band are all part of a day's work in the life of the opportunist entrepreneur granddad.
