Enter a prison, where a local poet and playwright has been locked away awaiting the Spanish inquisition. While he waits, his fellow prisoners decide to take his theatre trunk and manuscripts and destroy it. In a desperate attempt to save his belongings, the poet asks for a trial by the prisoners, he creates for them a piece of theatre, telling the story of an old man who sets aside his old identity to become “Don Quixote” a knight who sets forth into the world right all wrongs and prove virtue will triumph over evil.
