When in the deep south amongst Zapatista rebels, he meets a beautiful nun, whose doubts about her future draw him into a deeper involvement in the chaos that is Chiapas.The Maya people are a neglected nuisance to the state, occupying land rich in uranium, timber, hydro-electric potential and tourism.
