You're hearing strange voices and worry you may be going crazy. Your big quinceañera "surprise" is finding out you're a curandera, or witch ... and as if that's not bad enough, your psychic powers land you smack in the middle of a kidnapping case involving an ancient Mayan statue . . . and it's up to you to solve the mystery.
