The young Lee and Yan, both marked by an an ancient prophecy, flee from the Survivors' Village in a post-apocalyptic world. They search for the MYSTERIOUS BLUE LIGHTS that appeared in the sky over the Xibalba Mountains and defy the dangers of the GREAT DESERT OF HURACAN. On this journey in search of hope for humanity, they will have to face HURACAN, the entity that controls the Great Desert and that will try to prevent them from reaching Xibalba and fulfill the prophecy.
The series portrays a dystopic and post-apocalyptic universe with a magical worldbuilding view that rules it, connecting it with influences from AFRICAN-AMERINDIAN and PRE-COLUMBIAN cultures. These elements insert mystery, fantasy, power, ancestral FEMALE REPRESENTATIVITY and mythology in the plot, besides elements of science fiction, such as dimensional portals and concepts of multiverse.
By narrating the fantastic journey of Lee and Yan through the Great Desert of Huracan, Journey to Xibalba tells a story with adventure and suspense under the background of environmental dilemmas and social issues important to humanity in the contemporary world. A story that thrills and captures the attention of a young/adult audience interested in science fiction and fantasy.
