A film director returning home to his small Sicilian village after more than 30 years absence. Looking back on his magical childhood, the director remembers his friendship with Alfredo, the ageing projectionist at the Cinema Paradiso picture palace, who encouraged his love of the moving image. He also reminisces about his doomed romance with Elena, the love of his teenage life, who was spirited away from him in the years following the Second World War.
