The infamous man from La Mancha and his devoted squire embark on a new quest in this version of the second half of Cervantes's Don Quixote. Around the year 1615, Don Quixote (Juan Luis Galiardo) and Sancho Panza (Carlos Iglesias) enjoy the lives of celebrities. Now well into the twilight of his life, the eccentric nobleman gets the notion that a horde of angry Turks is about to launch a naval attack and Quixote decides it is once again time to suit up in the name of honor.
