Synopsis: Chef Santi Cordón takes a journey on his vegycle (a bicycle/garden/cooker) from his home town of Tudela to Malaga’s Film Festival in which a documentary is competing. The documentary is about the last vegetable gardeners in which Santi is the main character.

In this 900 kilometres eco trip, he has as a companion the Malaga-born permaculturist Alberto Marín. This humorous road movie is born in the back of their journey in which its noble protagonists plant a vegetable garden on their bicycle, making it their trustee steed.

This chivalrous adventure is a humble foray into a forgotten Spain to listen to the romantic quest of its last Quixotes, to exchange seeds with them and to highlight a culinary treasure on the verge of extinction.
