Based on the life of Mauricio Aznar, an enigmatic Spanish rock musician who, fatigued by his own music, traveled to Latin America for inspiration. There, he met Don Carlos, who rekindled his love for music with his unconventional style.

Mauricio Aznar is a fundamental and endearing figure on Spain’s 1990s rock scene, who finds a new passion for life and folk music on a journey of self-discovery through the picturesque Argentinean interior. During his journey, he meets a veteran musician who takes in the strange visitor, acting as his musical guide. Their unexpected encounter leads to a musical alliance that marks the beginning of an unforgettable Quixote-like adventure.
