A Dreamer for the People

The story is set in the Spanish 18th century, recreating Esquilache´s riot. The plot is centered on Marquis Esquilache, one of Carlos III’s ministers. Esquilache is a minister with an advanced ideology in tune with the Enlighten movement. He forwards a law that provokes some anxiety among the people of the country: a riot against the minister is organized due to the discontent. Esquilache, to avoid a Civil War, voluntarily goes into exile. But, as it turns out, it is not just the people behind the riot: Marquis of Ensenada, a minister exiled in the past, is the one who organized the uprising.
