One rainy day, Raimund Gregorius, an aging teacher of Latin and classical languages at a grammar school in Bern, saves a young woman from jumping off a bridge. The woman, who speaks only Portuguese, absolutely enchants him. After her disappearance, he finds in her coat pocket a book by doctor and philosopher Amadeu de Prado, who lived and fought in the times of fascist Portugal, and in the book a train ticket to Lisbon. And so he leaves his old life in Bern and sets out on an adventure he has long dreamed of.

In Lisbon, he follows in the footsteps of the author and runs into a tangle of political and emotional intrigue and an unhappy love story from the time of Salazar’s dictatorship.

His journey transcends time and space, touches on questions of history, philosophy and medicine and becomes a liberating search for himself and the meaning of life.

The film Night Train to Lisbon is based on the bestseller of the same name by Pascal Mercier, alias Peter Bieri. Oscar-winning actor Jeremy Irons excels in his role as the grammar school teacher.

No, it's the beginning.
