On a cataclysmically rainy night in LA, Anibal, struggling with his cultural identity, picks up Celestina, a mysteriously cryptic pregnant hitchhiker. She looks twenty-two but claims to be 54, and to have been pregnant for two years. Clocks stop and time is warped around her. Alone in his house, two years pass in one night. With a magically unique style, José Rivera tells a tale of love bursting with sensuality so mysterious it can warp time and space.
