Scoobi is an undocumented-law-student-love-child of the Zapatista rebellion of 1994. Petra, her mother, the former revolutionary is also undocumented. Dylan, is Scoobi’s ticket to citizenship. This odd trio navigates personal borders on the heels of Scoobie’s marriage of inconvenience to Dylan. Oh yes, Roko, the soldier-ghost of Scoobi’s soulmate is hanging out too.
An unlikely friendship ensues between the ‘YOUNG MAN’ and the ‘WOMAN’ as they are captive on a bus ride across the city on a late, late night. It is a journey traversing barriers of fear, suspicion and simple human truths.
A mythological autobiography as a contemporary odyssey through latitudes of heart and mind. Odisia (the accidental existentialist) and Lázaro, a shark fisherman, encapsulate the contradictions of an unlikely love affair that culminates in a moment of life and death in a village by the sharkful sea.
