Marisela is obsessed with locating the mysterious writer B. Traven, whose true identity has puzzled generations of admirers. She finds herself lost deep in the Mexican jungle, and there stumbles upon an enigmatic individual who may or may not be Traven, and what could be a treasure trove of invaluable, moldy manuscripts.
