Paradise tells the story of Sami, a French-Arabic closeted banlieue dealer who accidentally ends up in Phuket, Thailand. As a second-class citizen back home in Paris, the boy is all too happy to let loose, relishing his VIP treatment in Phuket. After meeting Veera, a young Thai export boy he falls in love with, Sami discovers a queer expat community that teaches him to see the world with new eyes. The film is a co-production with Galatée Films (Paris).
