Salvatore is a young boy in a small Italian village, where the only past time is a visit to the movies at the Cinema Paradiso. Enchanted by the flickering images, Salvatore yearns for the secret of the cinema's magic and is overjoyed when Alfredo, the projectionist, agrees to reveal the mysteries of movie making to him.
As their friendship grows, so does Salvatore. Growing older with his good friend and the movies he adores, he learns from them both how to court his first love. He also dreams of making his own films one day.
When the day comes for Salvatore to leave the village, Alfredo makes him promise to never look back, just to keep moving forward. Salvatore does just this - for 30 years. Until one day, a message arrives that beckons him back home...
