Success for Nobel Prize-winning, Barcelona-based novelist Daniel Mantovani (Wild Tales star and Miami favorite Oscar Martínez) is a double-edged sword: he enjoys its fruits, but it may be spoiling the integrity of his work. Desperate for self-renovation, Daniel accepts an invitation to return to his hometown of Salas, Argentina, to accept an award. Salas has served as the setting for all Daniel’s stories—though he hasn’t been back for 40 years. Daniel’s journey becomes a comic odyssey underpinned by irony: he’s a fish out of water in his own home.

A universal story about place, identity and the peculiar nature of nostalgia, The Distinguished Citizen has already been nominated for a Goya and won prizes at Haifa, Thessaloniki, Valladolid and Venice.
