From my first conscious thought on my father, he has been Don Quixote to me: A knight who wants to defeat the giants but is fighting windmills.


30 years ago he worked as a development aid in Cusco. When his best friend came to visit, he got shot.


Since this traumatic event my fathers world is out of joint.

And now:


30 years after, I was the same age as my father back then and about to be a father myself.


For this documentary I became Don Quixote:

A young man, who seeks the adventure of which he heard so many stories.

So I went on the journey to Peru, riding on my Rocinante through the Andes following the traces of my father.
