Sri Lanka, 1983: Jude Ratnam was five years old. He fled the massacre of the Tamils instigated by the majority-Sinhalese government on a red train. Now as a filmmaker, he once again travels from one end of his island to the other. The scars of the violence from 26 years of war that turned the Tamil’s fight for freedom into self-destructive terrorism, pass before his eyes.
Demons in paradise is the result of ten years of work and the first documentary by a Tamil filmmaker who dares to tell the story of the civil war from the inside.
