    • Trapped in a purgatory between this world and the next, 21-year-old Diego wanders the streets of L.A. in search of a human sacrifice for the vicious Aztec gods that control his soul. But the sacrifice they want is Maria, his own girlfriend. The Dead One is the story of Diego's fight against the dark gods for his soul...and for the soul of the woman he loves.
