Synopsis

A zany comedy about a soap opera screenwriter who falls in love with the star of the show and confuses fact with fiction as she writes a romance for her and
the star.
Ilona (Pamela Tola) is a penniless amateur actor who, because of a misunderstanding, is
hired onto the writing team of a soap opera. At a cast and crew party, Ilona meets and falls for the show’s star, Kalle (Mikko Leppilampi), who plays the role of a fire fighter named Antero. Ilona begins writing scenes for Antero based on the situation and uses the script to seduce him.
But the show’s producer Raakel (Outi Mäenpää), who is jealous of Antero, gets involved and
does her all to destroy Ilona’s plans. Using the show’s script, the women engage in a manic
fight for Kalle’s/Antero’s heart. As a result, Kalle appears to have completely lost his grip
on reality, and no longer sees the difference between himself and his character – or is it all
just a bluff?

The love triangle produces the best and most colourful episodes in the history of the show,
which draw a record audience on television. Raakel’s and Ilona’s fight for Kalle-Antero
climaxes in the season’s final episode, which is aired live. Both Raakel and Ilona have
written themselves roles in the climactic episode. There is romance, drama and
tragedy in store – but (in the heat of the battle between the women) it is unclear to
the very end who will end up with whom and who will shoot whom?
Prince of Soap is a romantic comedy that parodies soap operas, and in which fact and
fiction are confused in the fight between screenwriter and producer for the heart of
the lead actor. The increasingly surprising plot twists result in general chaos and
broken hearts – in front of and behind the cameras.
