José, an indigenous shaman from the mountains of Puebla, Mexico has decided it’s time to go back home after living in New Jersey, for over two decades. His reasons for leaving are not economic nor does he have a family waiting for him back home. One night, in a vivid dream, José sees the destruction of the earth, the Totonac Goddess Shkuyúchatl appears to tell him he must return home to perform a ritual inside a sacred cave or else the earth as we know it will suffer irreparable consequences.
