But... they turned away

Who are they supposed to turn to?

Where can they go?

There's nothing...

and the shelters can't...

they can't erase a person's identity.

No, they can't. But paradise can.


You go to paradise,

you pass through us and disappear.

We provide new identities.

New national registration numbers.

A place to live, work, money,

a passport. Medical care too.

Counseling is important.

- Why are you involved in this?

- I was beaten. Badly.

I was abused and stalked

It was an accident,

you even have a decree to prove it.

Unfortunately, the woman

from paradise thinks Im a reporter.

- You are a reporter.

- Not at Kvllspressen.

- What kind of a workout is this?

- Low impact.

- Does that involve a lot of jumping?

- No, no jumping at all.

- Or is there...

Oh, why did graham have to leave?

Just the sight of him made it

worth the effort. He's so gorgeous...

he looked like a statue.

Look, I don't know if Im up to this.
