Synopsis:

On the beaches of Kenya they‘re known as "Sugar Mamas": European women who seek out African boys selling love to earn a living. Teresa, a 50-year-old Austrian mother, travels to this vacation paradise. She goes from one Beach Boy to the next, from one disappointment to the next and finally she must admit: on the beaches of Kenya love is a business. Paradise: Love tells not without humor of sex tourism, older women and young men, the market value of sexuality, and the power of skin color.
