Olga is a Russian countess and member of the French Resistance. Jules is a French Nazi collaborator who is assigned to investigate her case. Helmut is a high-ranking, naive German SS officer who once fell in love with a younger Olga and meets her again when she is shipped to a concentration camp. While they recount their stories, Paradise
drifts between the bloody end of World War II and the gilded days when their destines first crossed.
