Nostalgia tells the story of Lucia and Manuel, two very different characters between themselves, but both unforgettable and fascinating. Their lives are marked by events and circumstances that happen to anyone: the awakening of conscience; the discovery of mortality; the first sexual love; parenting; the unavoidable loss of loved ones; adulthood and heartaches; old age and its loneliness; sickness, and death. The story, then, shows how they start evolving through time, in their way of understanding life and facing it. They’ll both meet briefly in one occasion, as teenagers, a reunion that she won’t ever recall, but that will change his life forever.
