He described Volver (which means "to come back" in Spanish) as a "generational story" about three women: a grandmother, a daughter and a granddaughter. The movie will take place between Madrid and La Mancha (Almodóvar's native land) in a tale that involves both ghosts and tango.
He had this to say about his upcoming project,
"I'm not saying it will be 100% comedy, but it will definitely have a lighter and funnier tone."
Actress Chus Lampreave, a veteran of his movies, will once again be in the cast. Cruz other film with the acclaimed director was All About My Mother.
