The third film in the “Paradise” trilogy tells the story of the 13-year-old Melanie. While her mother (Teresa) travels to Kenya, Melanie spends her holiday in the Austrian countryside at a strict diet camp for overweight teenagers. Under the supervision of a tattooed trainer and a creepy doctor, the teenagers attempt to do sports during the day and secretly get drunk in the evening. Between physical education and nutrition counseling, pillow fights and her first cigarette, Melanie falls in love with the doctor who is 30 years her senior. This juvenile obsession grows into Melanie’s first true love and whilst the senior physician whose the object of her affections initially warms to her advances, he rapidly becomes aware that she’s quickly discovering her inherent feminine seductive powers and will do anything to win him over.
