PARADISE DRIFTERS is a fragmented portrayal of three homeless young adults in search of money, love and happiness.
PARADISE DRIFTERS is a fragmented portrayal of the homeless young adults, Lorenzo, Yousef and Chloe. All three with different savage backgrounds, but with a shared insecurity about the future, without a base on which to fall back. What starts off as an individual search that must lead to money, chances and new opportunities appears to be a longing for human connection, security and mutual affection.
