The Matador is the epic tale of David Fandila's quest to become the world's top-ranked bullfighter. Heart-wrenching setbacks and thrilling successes dramatize "El Fandi's" three-year journey across Spain and Latin America and into the pages of bullfighting history. More than one man's quest for greatness, The Matador is a story of loveā€•of a son for his family, of audiences for their heroes, of a people for their cultural traditions, and of the bullfighter's paradoxical love for the majestic beast that he must kill to create his art.
