true story: 250 Spanish conquistadors, armed with guns, crossbows
and armor, suddenly find themselves chased out of 16th-century
Florida by half-naked Indians, only to discover a macabre nightmare
along the southeast Texas coast. Four lone survivors escape and
begin their search for Mexico. They confront starvation, loneliness,
and daily beatings at the hands of cannibalistic Indians. Then
the miracle occurs - a prodigy transforms them into the Children
of the Sun.
