Paradise is a German movie directed by Boris Kunz, starring Kostja Ullmann and Corinna Kirchhoff.
Paradise is a film set in the near future, where a groundbreaking technology allows the transfer of years of life from one person to another. The story revolves around Max, an employee at AEON, a biotech company responsible for developing this life-transfer method. When Max and his wife, Elena, are unable to pay their debt, she decides to take a drastic step, and give up 40 years of her life to AEON in order to cover what they owe. Initially hesitant, Max eventually comes to terms with this decision. However, his trust in AEON begins to waver when he suspects they are concealing the true risks associated with the life-transfer technology.
Driven to expose the truth, Max delves deeper into AEON’s operations and uncovers a disturbing secret.
