A middle-aged woman searches for love on the beaches of Kenya in director Ulrich Seidl's graphic study of modern-day sex tourism, the first in a triptych of tales about three women from the same family. After heading off to Kenya to soak up some sun, overweight 50-year-old Austrian Teresa (Margarete Tiesel) meets up with a group of like-minded middle-aged women, who waste no time in alerting her to the delights offered up by the young black beach boys who sell gifts, and themselves, to the white European female tourists. Initially hesitant about becoming involved, the love-starved Teresa changes her mind when she finds herself falling for the charms of Munga (Peter Kuzungu). Eager to believe the young Kenyan's protestations of love, a blinkered Teresa is forced to open her eyes when Munga's requests for money for his hard-up relatives become ever more persistent.
