Many refer to Denmark as a 'paradise' on earth. In many international surveys Danes rate as the happiest of people. Journeying through three very different stories we meet a young Danish soldier on his way to Iraq, an Iraqi girl who has been living in a refugee camp in Denmark for six years, and a middle-class couple expecting their first child. We experience that not everyone is allowed to enter or stay in Paradise. The three stories are built into a mosaic of other contemporary lives in Denmark. Faces of loneliness, longing, fear and control meet us.
Det Danske Filminstitut registrerer international festivaldeltagelse og priser til danske film,
dog primært de titler, som Filminstituttet varetager i sin festivaldistribution,
og primært i forbindelse med de festivaler, som Filminstituttet har prioriteret at samarbejde med.
Registreringen af festivaldeltagelse og priser til danske film, der ikke er i festivaldistribution,
foretages kun for "launch"-festivaler ifølge Filminstituttets prioriterede festivalliste. Se listen over prioriterede festivaler.
