    Sixteenth-century Spanish gentleman Don Quixote, fed by his own delusional fantasies, takes to the road in search of chivalrous adventures. But his quest leads to more trouble than triumph.

    It's the late 60s, the last dark years of Franco's dictatorship: Minaya, a university student in Madrid, is caught up in the student protests, and the police are after him. He moves to his uncle Manuel's country estate in the small town of Mgina to write his thesis on an old friend of Manuel's, an obscure republican poet named Jacinto Solana. Minaya soon discovers that, 30 years earlier both his uncle and Solana were in love with the same woman, the beautiful, unsettling Mariana.
