Albert Finney stars in director John Huston's adaptation of Malcolm Lowry's acclaimed novel, set against the backdrop of imminent war in Europe. Focusing on just one day in 1938, the film charts the life of former British Consul Geoffrey Firmin (Finney) as he struggles with dipsomania in the small Southern Mexican town of Quauhnahuac. As the festivities of the Day of the Dead erupt around him, Firmin, on an increasingly downward spiral, tries to build bridges with his returning ex-wife Yvonne (Jacqueline Bisset) while refusing to accept the concerns of his half-brother Hugh (Anthony Andrews).
