What if the world is going to end one day? 21st of december 2012. "Spiritual tourists" from all over the world invade Mexico and can be found at the foot of the pyramids believing that the end of the Mayan Calendar will be the starting point for an epochal change. Out of the ruins, the impassive Mexicans, engaged in the noisy celebrations for the Guadalupe's Virgin, refuse the idea of a possible end of the world predicted by their ancestors. A medley of culture and believes is a mirror of actual disorientation: a date with a global echo, meditations, prayers and prophecies become the cue for reflections about concepts of dream, faith and the end. This is the way the world ends This is the way the world ends This is the way the world ends Not with a bang but a whimper T.S. Eliot
