PARADISE

Synopsis: 
Paradise tells the compelling story of three individuals whose paths cross amidst the devastation of war. Olga, a Russian aristocrat and member of the French Resistance, is arrested by Nazi police for hiding Jewish children. In jail, she meets Jules, a French-Nazi collaborator who is assigned to investigate her case. Shipped to a concentration camp, she crosses paths with high-ranking German SS officer Helmut, who once fell madly in love with her and still harbours feelings. Helmut resolves to rescue Olga and offers her an escape that she no longer thought possible. As the fate of Nazi defeat looms, Olga’s notion of Paradise is irrevocably changed.
