This is what happens to Toshio Shinobu when, after the death of his father, he decides to quit Japan for the first time to discover the setting of the book that has marked his life: Don Quixote.
Shinobu will travel thousands of kilometers until he reaches a village in La Mancha where, in this wonderful novel, he will come across landscapes, people and customs unimaginable to him. This is how he ends up staying with Herminia, a widow with whom he will establish a very particular relationship.
Just as Alonso Quijano flung himself against windmills mistaken for giants, the protagonist of this story will travel the immense plain of La Mancha on his bicycle and will gradually strengthen his bond with his new neighbors, until he finds something that he did not even know he was looking for.
A story about the transformative power of literature.
