Summary
One day Oscar Kortico wakes to find himself utterly alone in the world. As the sole descendant of his family line he is not sure what to do or where he should go, but in the midst of this uncertainty he holds fast to what his grandfather always told him: 'No man knows who he is until he knows his past, the history of his country.' As he sets out to find the lost village of Pata de Puerco and the meaning of the magical pig's foot amulet he has inherited, the search for his country's hidden history becomes entangled with his search for the truth about himself
