The Return

The Earth's population has been wiped out by a mysterious force. Forty years later, a man who was sent to another planet in the outer space as part of an experiment when he was a child, comes back on a surprising mission of self-knowledge and great revelations. With an extraordinary superpower, unknown to the world he lives in, capable of seeing and feeling the near future, our protagonist leads us on a beautiful, but painful journey of reflection and understanding of who he is, of who we are.
An ancient tree, a friend who happens to be his first love, a sealed capsule buried and the history of life on Earth interrupted. THE RETURN is a film about the saga of a man in search of what is most dear to him, the truth.
