He soon learns that his life is ineluctably woven with one of the great visionaries of Mexican history, Juan Diego, the indigenous peasant who first envisioned Our Lady of Guadalupe. A direct descendant of Juan Diego, Tony Guadalupe must confront his unknown past and accept both his burdens and gifts, a journey undertaken in different ways by his grandfather and his father. Meanwhile, the Catholic Church seeks to disempower the Guadalupes, whose shamanistic lineage connects them to the Aztec goddess Tonantzin.
