The inherent search for identity
Diego and his daughter Xochitl live in an abandoned building in Mexico City and, among other things, they make a living by selling paintings about Mexican mythology. While Xochitl paints to know her roots and know where she comes from, Diego is only interested in selling the paintings to get ahead with his daughter, to the point of making up all kinds of tales for tourists to buy from them. One day, Xochitl secretly paints a mural which summons Quetzal, a baby-feathered-serpent version of the almighty god Quetzalcoatl, who takes her through the mural into the very world of the Mexican Gods. Diego will have to navigate in reality the myths that he’s always lied about to save his only daughter from becoming the Sixth Aztec Sun.
