A scent of Paradise is based on the real-life story about Swedish botanist Nils Oluf Vesterberg and Danish Karen Mogensen. The couple meet in Sweden at the end of the 1950's and fall in love. With a little help from his father, they move to Costa Rica to start anew, away from civilisation and in close contact with nature. The question is, can fame protect them and their dream of paradise on earth?
