The Return is the story of a delightful and life-changing journey back to Costa Rica. After living 10 years in New York, 30 year-old Antonio returns to San José where he is forced to deal with the realities he ran away from.

When things take an unexpected turn, Antonio is forced to remain home far longer than he anticipated.
