Forced into exile by the events of the Civil War, Antonio Albajara, now a famous writer who has just won the Nobel Prize, returns to Gijón, his hometown in Spain, his old friends and to Elena, his first love. Garci's moving film is about Antonio's journey back to his past and his homeland, and was the first Spanish film to win a Best Foreign Language Film Oscar.
