A successful film director in his 40s, Salvatore returns to his hometown in Sicily after hearing of the death of Alfredo, ex-projectionist at the Paradiso village cinema.

We're then transported back to Salvatore's World War II childhood and adolescence when, obsessed by movies, he is befriended by the wise and gruffly benevolent Alfredo. Warmly nostalgic, and the final montage of censored clips, hoarded by the boy and rediscovered in adult life, is a sweet hymn to the romance of cinema.
