The townspeople of Pioneer Cemetery await the arrival of a newcomer, Jesus Martinez, the rebellious young man alleged to have dynamited a concrete cross. They are guarded by the imperious caretaker, whose mysterious powers keep order and submissiveness among the dead spirits.But even among the dead there are rebel spirits demanding answers to their questions: Why have the young been condemned to their early graves? What is the purpose and meaning, if any, of human life? And, finally, where is the justice in life when evil is often rewarded and innocence punished?The young man is thought to have killed himself. But did he? He is driven to find out how and why he died, but to do so he must break the cardinal rule of the cemetery that separates the living from the dead. To find the answers to his and his fellow townsmen’s questions, he must escape from the cemetery and visit the young woman he loved. To do so, however, will put him and those he loves at great risk. Is the risk worth taking? And what answers, if any, will he find if he takes the risk and leaves the cemetery?
