A wonderful family story about growing up, making a difference, and doing the right thing.


A few days before Christmas, as Maricela de la Luz and her brother Riccardo come out of a San Diego mall, the world suddenly changes: unexplainable snowfall, adults disappearing, a polar bear, and some penguins. Maricela and Riccardo have no way of reaching their mother or their father, and realizing the safest place to be is home, the kids decide to hit the road. Along the way, the children meet a distraught Mayan Moon God, the two-headed Goddess of the U.S.-Mexico Border (who explains to them that something is out of balance in the mythic world and begs the kids for help), and a massive cyclops-in a volcano.

On this magical and unusual journey the children learn the meaning of heroism and commitment.
