FAREWELL PARADISE shows the search for a truth within a broken family.
After the father of the family left his four young daughters and his wife, the mother did not take care of the children either. What causes parents to suddenly leave their beloved children behind? And how does this influence the children themselves? Farewell Paradise shows one shared history, and from six perspectives six different stories emerge. The film is not an attempt at reconciliation.
