Daniel Mantovani is an Argentine writer who has lived in Europe for over three decades, internationally recognized for having won the Nobel Prize for literature. His novels are characterized by telling about life in Salas, a small town in Argentina where he was born and which he has not visited since he was a young man with aspirations to be a writer.

In the numerous correspondence he receives daily he gets a letter from the City of Salas inviting him to receive the town’s most prestigious recognition: the Distinguished Citizen medal. Surprisingly, and despite his important obligations and compromises, Daniel decides to accept the proposal and returns to his town for a few days.

The trip will have multiple aspects for Daniel: it will be the triumphant return to the town that saw him grow up, a trip to the past where he will reunite with old friends, lovers and nostalgic scenery, but above all else it will be a trip to the very heart of his literature, to the source of his creations and inspirations. Once there, the author will confirm both the affinities that still unite him with Salas and the differences that will quickly transform him into a strange and perturbing element to the town’s life.

“A sophisticated and well-done farce, The Distinguished Citizen is lifted to another level by the wonderful Martinez, who excels as a man searching for a lost innocence that he comes to realize was never there.”
