    Summary: 
    Edited film documents an eight-day Mayan Indian fiesta in Chiapas Mexico. In the mountain town of Tenejapa, the burden of giving celebrations for the town's patron saints falls on private individuals. The film follows two men through their duties to one of the saints, Santiago, which include ritual prayer and drinking sessions, offerings of candles, prayers and large public processions of the saint's images. Film made by Duane Metzger and Carter Wilson.
