Overview

A rice farmer in contemporary northern Peru experiences a recurring dream which he relates to his village shaman. The shaman’s interpretation is that he was a Moche lord in a previous life, and the dream is directing him to open a tomb, perhaps his own, in an adobe pyramid built by the Moche civilization in the third century AD. The farmer assembles a crew and, digging only at night, they reach a royal burial chamber packed with exquisite golden artifacts. Their subsequent attempts to sell the pieces on the international antiquities market are successful until the police learn of the find and want their share. Rampant greed and corruption in their ranks pits policemen against their fellow officers, and the grave robbers are caught in the middle. Woven throughout are subtle themes of mysticism and reincarnation, and the hard-edged realities of avarice and official depravity.
