Synopsis

Xochiquetzal and Javier meet at a resort near Puerto Vallarta and begin a highly erotic love affair of 12 years, which extends beyond, into the Mayan Sixth World. There's a weaving of dreams as they meet crucial people on their travels: Ai from Tokyo, traveling the world to plant peace crystals in honor-and warning-of the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki; Hank, a Hopi man who gives them vital and timely information on the Hopi prophecies; Don Francisco from Oaxaca/Chiapas, a Mayan shaman who brings the wisdom of the coming Mayan Sixth World; and Ari, an Israeli Commando whose family story brings the Jewish Holocaust to light passionately. Everyone eventually meets in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, where Xochiquetzal and Javier live, and at an all night fiesta at a magical mansion, everyone's personal and collective wounds are revealed and healed.
