SheMoreIn Dias Patrias, a Curandera, healer, by the name of Celestina, with a very mysterious past, possibly dating back to pre-Columbian times in Mexico, tries to guide an intelligent, talented Tomas Alvarez away from the devastation of alcohol. She attributes his anomaly to a curse put upon the Mexican people since before history began. Celestina has a strong faith in the power of El Dador de La Vida, Giver of Life and Tze-Otz, as the force in everything that opposes. She tells stories about los antepasados, the forefathers and how they were cursed. She warns Tomas Alvarez that he has the curse upon him. He does not listen to her until his last breath, when he faces Tze-Otz. Tomas Alvarez is a proud and selfish man whose life and that of his family and those around him is severely impacted by his drinking.
