A disillusioned advertising director is pulled into a time-jumping fantasy when he is mistaken for Sancho Panza.

Toby, a cynical advertising director, finds himself trapped in the outrageous delusions of an old Spanish shoe-maker who believes himself to be Don Quixote. In the course of their comic and increasingly surreal adventures, Toby is forced to confront the tragic repercussions of a film he made in his idealistic youth -- a film that changed the hopes and dreams of a small Spanish village forever. Can Toby make amends and regain his humanity? Can Don Quixote survive his madness and imminent death? Or will love conquer all?

SP/UK/FR/BE/PT, 2018, 132 min., Dir. Terry Gilliam
