Polish king Basilio has read in the stars that his newly born son Segismundo is destined to be a tyrant. Accepting the prediction as true, he confines his son to a tower. Twenty years later, Basilio, concerned about the succession to his throne, decides to see whether predestination or free will is the stronger force. Segismundo is drugged and brought to court asleep: if he can control his passions, he is fit to reign; if not, he will be returned to his prison and told that his palace experience was only a dream. Upon awakening in court, Segismundo is told of his royal heritage, but is unable to control his rage. Returned to his cell, Segismundo awakens and ponders whether it is his palace experience or his solitary confinement that is illusory

El Cantar de mio cid ( Visual )
4 editions published between 1980 and 2010 in Spanish and English and held by 217 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"El Cid is unique among the world's great epics because it was composed so close to the actual historical events (a mere 40 years after the death of Rodrigo Diaz de Vivar, el Cid himself) that we can distinguish between man and legend. Meticulous attention to historical detail, spectacular cinematic production values, and the swashbuckling plot itself make this medieval epic superbly entertaining as well as educational. An RTVE Production. (60 minutes)."
