Funny, strange, and disturbing, "Tabloid" is a vivid portrayal of a driven woman whose romantic obsessions and delusions catapult her over the edge into scandal sheet notoriety and an unimaginable life. Thirty years before the antics of today’s scandalous celebrities, Miss Wyoming, Joyce McKinney, made her mark as a tabloid staple. The salacious adventures of this beauty queen with an IQ of 168 leads her across the globe, into jail, and onto the front page of newspapers everywhere. Joyce's labyrinthine crusade for love takes her through a surreal world of kidnapping, manacled Mormons, risque photography, magic underwear, and celestial sex--until her dream is finally realized in a cloning laboratory in Seoul, South Korea. This is an extraordinary cinematic journey.
