Jeremy Irons returns to Lisbon
One day, a book of Amadeu de Prado, a mysterious Portuguese author, and a train ticket fall into the hands of Raimund Gregorius, a discrete Latin teacher who lives in Bern, Switzerland. The book triggers a culture shock in Raimund, who decides to leave everything behind and catch the train to Lisbon to discover more about the author, a rebellious Aristocrat who was involved with the resistance forces that led to the Carnation Revolution. The book poses the same questions that have haunted Raimund for years: "there is a secret underneath the surface of human activity?"; "And if we really just a part of what we have inside us, what happens to the rest?"... As he unravels the life of Amadeu de Prado, Gregorius relives his own life.
