"La Doa, One Person as Three" describes a wealthy woman who creates two other personalities to find a non-violent way to destroy a drug operation in a remote Guatemalan town: a sister in plain dress and her angry mental creature full of power. She inspires the people of the town to pull together to love and trust each other. At the same time her son, who is on drugs, finds a cure from a Mayan Curandero and becomes a new man. The ancient town moves into the modern age, keeping old traditions that matter, but dropping bad habits and taboos gathered over centuries. Once a human catalyst is active, many events can unfold. This story is based on real people, too moving to forget, who created co-operatives teaching new skills to women who had lost their husbands or had been abandoned. They learned that every individual has power to be used thoughtfully.
