The director and screenwriter Borja Cobeaga has been based on his own experience to tell the story of Pablo, a man who, after 40 years of age (Juan Diego Botto) decides to get his driver’s license. This grumpy university professor will have a hard time assuming that he still has a lot to learn, especially when he receives his practical classes from a professor, or as he likes to say, a somewhat peculiar educator, very involved and joking. In class, to make matters worse, he coincides with one of his students, Yolanda, with whom he will establish a curious relationship. Anyone who has obtained the card will be identified in the situations that the protagonist lives, and anyone who is a son (everyone) will understand the emotional part of this series that knows how to combine its comical and tender aspects very well. And watch out for the driving school teacher, a brilliant David Lorente.

An event will cause a more or less uneven group of characters to be forced to leave the castle walls to seek the help of the sorcerer Willow and thus try to put things back on track. The series brings back some of the characters and actors from the movie (including Warwick Davis) and, judging by the trailers, it has that classic teen-adventure fantasy feel that connects to the movie, albeit with obvious modern twists.
