Cold Copy is a riveting thriller that delves into the pressing issue of our era: the dominance of narrative over truth. The film chronicles the journey of Mia Scott, an ambitious journalism student, as she vies for the approval of the formidable Diane Heger, a renowned interviewer and the face of The Night Report. Desperate to have her segment featured on the show, Mia finds herself under Diane's influential and scrutinizing gaze. Diane's powerful persona and Mia's hunger for recognition drive Mia to compromise on her ethics, distorting the story of her naïve subject, the confident teenager Igor Nowak, to make it more sensational. The narrative unravels as a complex interplay between two women: one who has mastered the art of projecting an image of success, and the other who is convinced that emulating this façade is her only path to triumph. Ultimately, Cold Copy is a profound exploration of the destructive consequences of our increasing obsession with self-construction and narrative, in a world where the crafted story often overshadows the truth.
