In the little town of Santa Clara, where the spirits return once a year for the Day of the Dead, lives Salma, a 16 year-old orphan who has never met her biological parents. Salma has spent most of her life dedicated to searching out clues for her parents’ identity and their whereabouts. But without any memories or keepsakes to put on their altar on the Day of the Dead, Salma is lost with how to bring them back to meet her. Meanwhile, her two foster brothers, Jorge and Pedro, discover an ancient book of stories and spells which could be the missing link to her mysterious past. Together, they embark on a journey of adventures with friendly ghosts, adorable skull babies, and a mysterious wizard who claims the answers to Salma’s past are in the underworld where the dead live. But has Salma been tricked into the underworld as a trap? Or will the underworld indeed reveal the truth about Salma’s parents and the meaning behind this sacred, traditional family celebration?
