The documentary reveals the professional and personal struggles of journalist and war photographer Andrej Bán. Through intimate conversations and travels together, the director Jaro Vojtek documents Andrej’s personal story, his struggles with loneliness and depressions as well as his inability to establish a long-term functional relationship that he longs for. At the same time, the film documents tragic and complex stories in war zones and refugee camps as well as the social threats of Slovak political life (neo-Nacism). Jaro follows Andrej to various destinations in the world, his camera observing his interaction with people in need and his photographic work. Paradise on Earth is a topography of individual and global struggles – continual therapy without the end.
