Driven by biological excess, a man and a woman search for sexual fulfillment, unaware of each other's existence. Unfortunately, they eventually meet, and the bonding of these two very unusual human beings ends in a god awful love story.
This is an enjoyable, but unspectacular B movie which interestingly was made years before similar-plotted "No Escape". Irene Cara stars as innocent wife who accompanies her convicted terrorist husband to the laser-guarded prison island of Paradiso. When the couple is separated, Irene is picked up by a tribe of amazons which try to maintain some degree of civilization against the savage male prisoners. Trouble starts when the couple meets again and the beloved husband turns out to be equally vicious as the other men and finally convinces his meanwhile likewise imprisoned terrorist leader to attack the womens camp.
Nice photography, quite a good performance by Paula Bond, Irene does a bit too much whining and the end is not really convincing, but pretty OK fare for its price tag.
