A corporation worker, unaware of having fallen victim to a vicious joke, decides to change his life and together with a friend of his, sets out on an irrational trip to the capital city in order to participate in a vocal TV talent contest. The film Tom Bishop is a modern fusion of a feature film and musical that combines the vision of the world expressed in Don Quixote by Cervantes with the live vocal performance complementing the soundtrack.
‘O perpetual discoverer of the antipodes, torch of the world, eye of heaven
Thou that always risest and, notwithstanding appearances, never settest!
To thee, O Sun, I appeal to help me and lighten the darkness of my wit
So that I may be able to partly give an account of what can by no means be explained.
Help me draw a conclusion, for without thee I feel myself weak, feeble, and uncertain.’
Miguel de Cervantes
