Director Ulrich Seidl's "Paradise" trilogy draws to a close with this tale of a portly young woman who falls for an older doctor while spending the holidays at an Austrian camp for overweight teens. While her mother Teresa travels to Kenya, 13-year-old Melanie is forced to attend a camp focusing on how to eat healthy and stay in shape. But when the exercise is done, the Melanie and the rest of the mischievous campers pass the time drinking, smoking, and waging epic pillow fights. Meanwhile, a dashing doctor makes Melanie's heartstrings start to twitch, despite the 40-year age gap between them.
