The year is 1531. In a small hut on the slopes of the volcano Popocateptl, scholar and poet Alvaro de Sevilla reflects on his extraordinary life. For Alvaro was one of the small army of conquistadors who, some years earlier, set out to conquer an empire ...
Hernando Cortes is a man driven by his desire for gold and glory - in the name of his God and his country. Having been proclaimed a reincarnation of the god Quetzacoatl, the Feathered Serpent, shortly after his arrival in the New World, Cortes takes advantage of the hatred for the central state of Mexica - and their superstition - to force his way to the capital city. There he will meet Montezuma, the Aztec Emperor, who at first welcomes the conquistadors to his city, showering them with gold.
But it is an encounter between two civilisations - two worlds - that can only end in chaos, death and destruction.
