EL CORAZÓN DEL VOLCÁN / THE HEART OF THE VOLCANO
At the foot of the volcano, Gregorio sacrifices his soul to a warlock in order to save the soul of his young daughter Nextli from the latter. Due to this malicious deal, he gets weaker and weaker and his crops slowly die. Nextli looks for and creates different kinds of magic solutions, but nothing will do. One night, the Warlock pays Gregorio a visit to warn him he’s almost out of time and once that happens, he’ll take his soul and Nextli’s with him. As things don’t get better, Nextli decides to climb the volcano to do an offering so she can get its help and thus save her father’s soul. Unexpectedly the Warlock casts a spell on Nextli so she would get lost, but with the help of the fire, she will find the cave where the volcano will give her its heart. This way she frees her father’s soul, but she still has to confront the Warlock. This confrontation is short and powerful, as Nextli will be able to destroy the Warlock with the help of her father’s heart.
