On the Oaxacan coast rumblings of a time before are never far from the surface. Tales of shapeshifting, telepathy and dealings with the devil are embedded within the colonization and enslavement of the Americas. Characters from the Faust legend mingle with the inhabitants, while attempting to colonize and control nature through a seemingly never-ending building project. Through literature, myth, and local entanglements, the veil between reality and fiction, and the seen and unseen is lifted.
