Paradise: Love
Strand Releasing Home Ent.

Teresa, a 50-year-old woman, travels to the beaches of Kenya as a sex tourist or “Sugar Mama”. There, she moves from one Beach Boy to the next, buying their love only to be disappointed and quickly learning that there, love is strictly a business. With a very unique brand of realism, socio-politial critique and warped humor the movie deals with the market value of sexuality, older women and young men.
