Quixote kneels before the Knight of the Mirrors. His face is projected on the floating stone bricks, as if in a shattered mirror, as he pleads to the knight. The images of his face panned and shifted as if seen in fractured mirrors.

A combination of stars and foliage are proiected, as if the night sky is seen through trees. These were projected on the floating bricks of the dungeon wall, among the flickering torches.
