    Stories from Paradise is a multimedia melodrama that makes use of non-linear techniques to explore interactive storytelling and social critique. It is composed of three absurd stories that develop independently and can be viewed in different ways depending on the viewer’s choices. At the end of the movie the three stories come together in a single final scene.
    Each story is divided into absurd scenes that represent some of the phobias, fears, and delirium of our contemporary society: consumerism, extreme individualism, and obsession with health and sex. The three stories incorporate excerpts of real life interviews, and clips from TV and movies, blurring the line between reality and fiction, cliché and everyday life.
