The battle of a young indigenous American man who grows up like most other indigenous Americans suffering from the aftermath of ethnic cleansing, displacement, internalized racism, Stockholm syndrome, forced assimilation, and the ongoing colonialism that began in the year 1492. The young man grows up with deep-rooted self-hatred, ashamed of his indigenous American roots—bleaching his hair, buying whitening creams, and using blue contact lenses—desperately attempting to erase all physical evidence of the obvious proof of who he is. Until, one day, his grandfather asks him why he hates himself so much and gives him an antique scroll written in the 1500s, which contains the root of where his problem of internalized racism began. The ancient scroll is written in Nahuatl, and the only way to learn Nahuatl is to return to Oaxaca, Mexico, where he was born and find someone that could teach him. The question is does it matter enough to know what was written so long ago in an ancient language? And, if so, what will he discover? But, more importantly, what will he do with the information learned?
