Stunning in its openness, Echoes of Paradise is the story of Maria (international beauty Wendy Hughes), who loses her father to death and her husband to another woman. Seeking refuge from her shattered life she escapes to an island Paradise where she falls under the spell of a remarkable, Balinese temple dancer (John Lone – The Last Emperor, Year of the Dragon and Iceman), whose mesmerizing movements captivate her eyes, her body and her soul. What will be left of Maria, torn between her family and the Echoes Of Paradise?
