Pill popping Lucy Santiago heads to her family home in Bolivia after being fired from the syndicated hit "Beach Detectives". All she wants to do is forget her troubles but her wildly eccentric family and a mysterious spirit that lives under Simon Bolivar's campaign bed won't let her. Lucy is forced to confront her own troubled history as well as the history of a conquered people.
