A pole dancer thought she landed a dream job when she accepted an offer to teach lap dancing in a Caribbean nightclub. But soon after arriving in Guyana, she and her husband David were forced at gunpoint to smuggle liquid cocaine to England. They successfully get through two customs points before being arrested in Guadeloupe. Locked up in paradise, the couple must learn if their love can withstand the brutality of prison and a life-altering injury.
