Set in the background of a foreboding desert town, Blanca (Kim Hesser, La Venganza), a young woman, escapes an abusive relationship and is saved by her empathetic neighbor, Alex (Maggie Guzman). Together, they must confront the fallout from an ongoing investigation centered around the disappearance of one of the town's chief criminal targets. Reminiscent of the crime thrillers of the 1970s, Sexo en Paraiso is filled with tension and mystery, ultimately drawing the viewer into a sordid world filled with fear, lies, and desire. Shot and produced in and around Southern Arizona and Mexico, SEXO EN PARAISO takes advantage of the landscape and feeling of isolation that permeates the desert as well as the characters within the film.
