"Bisbal" is a documentary with never-before-seen archive images and testimonials from the artist, David Bisbal. The documentary tells the story of Bisbal, who celebrates 20 years of his career and he wants to celebrate it in Almería, his native land, with a big concert close to his family. The camera fixes on him, follows him, accompanies him during the days leading up to what will be the most emotional concert of his life. During this maelstrom, with the sea and the Almería desert in the background, David looks back and remembers who he is and where he's come from: from singing in a band in one festival after another, dreaming of performing on other stages and a musical talent contest that changed how he became famous forever.

Looking back, he also recalls his time at OT on the TV talent show (Operación Triunfo), but also the hostility with which he was received by a music industry in crisis, and his battle, not only to hold his place, but to gain credibility within it. The title forms part of Movistar+'s editorial line of non-fiction, with original products that tell stories from a different point of view."David takes us back to his roots and that is where we understand why, despite his success, he continues to be the hero of the people," a the company states about the artist. "He is the artist who climbed up from humble beginnings. And how, from a place so far away from everything, he is able to achieve something that is reserved for very few: that everybody knows your songs and they remain in the collective memory forever. That's the real success, and David has already achieved it."

I prefer personal success and true love over a thousand music awards because that is real success. That is the essence of life.” David Bisbal Artist
