A beggar and a butcher fight for the Princess and the Queen of Spain's love. These characters, without their awareness, will access a place denied for them because of their ethnic and social status.

A black Quixote and an Andean Sancho, marginalized and dreamy Latin Americans, kidnap the queen and the princess of Spain, whose identities they do not know, and fight to win their love. Without intending, they accede to a space hitherto denied due to their ethnic and social condition,
generating a conflict that shakes the historical relations between the Spanish Crown and the invaded people.

EC, 2016, 80 min., Dir. Sandino Burbano

In Spanish with English subtitles
