In this second instalment of the Paradise trilogy, Ulrich Seidl explores what it means to bear the cross. For Anna Maria, an X-ray technician, paradise lies with Jesus. She devotes her vacation to missionary work, so that Austria may be brought back to the path of virtue. One day, after years of absence, her husband, an Egyptian Muslim confined to a wheelchair, comes home. This movie recounts the stations of the cross of a marriage and the longing for love.
