Our story is a fantasy retelling of a tale told to me by my cousin who ran a sports fishing and diving service from Baja California, Mexico.
It is during the early 1970s when American teen Christopher Marcos is falsely accused of drug running and is sent to the infamous Tijuana Jail. There he has an altercation with a sadistic guard and is sent to Mexico’s Federal island prison Islas Tres Maris. A prison located 60 miles to sea south west of Mazatlan. It is told that no one has ever escaped, never making it past the marauding sharks or being discovered by the Federales on the mainland.
The moment Christopher arrives in shackles on Islas Tres Marias he meets the warden El Jefe and his constant companion, the bullwhip. Soon he is integrated into the prison community and he befriends Checo the alpha inmate and vital ally. Using his marshal arts skill along his love of cooking, Christopher collects a vital key if he is ever to escape….pesos, money.
One day while working near the island landing he meets Juanita the daughter of a visiting boat captain. She is also the apprentice to Mazatlan’s la Curandera, mystical healer. As their romance blooms the urge to escape is heightened. They plot. Hurricane Olivia looms.
