In search of paradise they made one mistake . . . they brought themselves.
When a pair of life-long friends see their fast-lane lives heading nowhere, they take a detour...into an erotically charged, psychologically perilous adventure of the heart.
After years of upward mobility, best friends Jeff (William Peterson) and Marty (Gary Cole) have achieved the American dream - and ended up disillusioned and restless. They concoct an overseas business trip meant to exorcise their demons, but it soon escalates into a full-fledged escape - to a spectacularly remote tropical island where they both fall in love with the same free-spirited beauty (Sheryl Lee). Throwing caution to the wind, they make the fateful decision to shed their families back home and set out to create a sexual and spiritual utopia, observed and counselled by a wry Buddhist monk (Terence Stamp). But there's trouble in this sensual paradise...and it will ultimately test the bonds of friendship and the limits of love for each of them.
