SNOW IN PARADISE

Drama, Female Director(s)
Snow in Paradise is a snapshot of life on a remote, picturesque island in the South Pacific, as seen through the eyes of a young Polynesian girl. When she ventures out on her daily routine, she encounters the familiar faces of her family and the small community that she loves. Like her, they are all unaware of the devastating power that lies just beyond the ocean reef. In one moment her world will change forever.
