88 year old Simin from Iran is living in a nursing home for the elderly in Sweden. She doesn't speak any Swedish and the nursing staff can't understand her. Her everyday life is bombarded with tragicomical misunderstandings, but despite this Simin tries to remain a positive outlook on life. "Paradiset" is a touching documentary about an immigrants encounter with the Swedish elderly care and tells with great sensibility and humor about our need to be understood.
"Paradiset" is the director Ahang Bashi's debut and has won prizes for best new director and best international student production at Nordic film festivals. "Paradise" is also nominated for Best Nordic Youth Film at NUFF 2010.
