The story is told from the perspective of 2017 and set mostly in the late 1970s, the important target date is December 21, 2012â the end of the 5126 year long-count cycle of the ancient Mayan Calendarâ when unusual things have been predicted to happen.

There are Mayan Elders, gangsters, unpredictable hillbillies, an incredibly beautiful and highly trained Mayan operative, shrimp boats, treks through the jungle, death, and some weddings.
