Documentary that explores how young women in the African Republic of Cameroon use internet cafes to search for marriage prospects in Europe to escape poverty. Interviews many of these young women who see Europe as a "paradise," and who express incredibly naïve beliefs about European men. The film also tells the stories of several Cameroonian women who married white Europeans, showing their current situations, the cultural differences with which they deal, and the personal sacrifices they made in exchange for economic security. A film by Francois Ducat. 2007. 90 min.
