Today Netflix Deutschland dropped the official trailer for Paradise, the new sci-fi action thriller from Germany. Check it out.
Set in a not-too-distant future, Paradise sees a radical new form of financing created, one that allows the transfer of years of life from one person to another — changing the world forever and turning biotech start-up AEON into a billion-dollar pharmaceutical company.
For Max (Kostja Ullmann, Tatort: Cologne, Beat) and Elena (Marlene Tanczik, Never Look Away, Milk & Honey), their almost-perfect life is changed forever when the couple is faced with unexpected insurance claims that they can’t possibly pay. As a last resort and with no other choice, Elena sells 40 years of her life to AEON — robbing her and Max of their life together and leaving their future in tatters.
Max, who works for AEON, tries everything he can to get Elena’s lost years back. Even if he could, nothing will ever be the same again. Then Max learns that AEON’s CEO (Iris Berben, The Typist, Triangle of Sadness) is after Elena’s lifetime — prompting him to abduct her and triggering a manhunt that forces the young couple to leave their home and pushes their moral boundaries to the limit.
Paradise, a Netflix Film, premieres globally on Thursday, July 27, exclusively on Netflix. (You can set a reminder for it now.)
Costars in the film include Corinna Kirchhoff (Bauhaus – A New Era), Lisa-Marie Koroll (Circle of Life), Alina Levshin (Rivals Forever), Lorna Ishema (You Are Wanted), Numan Acar (Homeland), and Lisa Loven Kongsli (Occupied).
