In an asylum, a crazy dreamer who thinks he is Don Quixote inspires his fellow inmates with his daydreams of the beauties of Spain.

“An ill man imagines himself to be Don Quixote and tries to be kind, caring, and loving towards other people – but is such an attempt a symptom of a mental disability? If it is, then long live the madman’s fantasy…” – Boris Eifman
