A dying man pulls himself across the Sahara desert. His only company is a talking macaw. And his only reason to continue is love. Somewhere across the desert is the girl who is worth everything to him. Flash back to the man’s childhood. He and his parents live in Guatemala City during the 1980s: a dark era for Guatemala. People talk of a communist rebellion in the jungle and the whispers have reached the United States. A communist rebellion so close to home wasn’t going to be allowed during the Cold War, so the U.S. gave the Guatemalan government everything needed to destroy the rebels. With this new found power, the Guatemalan government enacts a genocide of the Mayan people to smoke out the rebels living in the jungle. Events force the boy and his mother to return to their ancestral home, a Mayan village deep in the jungle where rebels hide. During this time, the boy grows into a young man and falls in love with a girl who to him is worth everything, but then genocides find their village. He and the girl are the only two survivors. Homeless and desperate to take care of the girl, he unknowingly sells himself into slavery on the other side of the world, but the relentless love he has for the girl refuses to let him die a slave.
