There are rumours about the desecration of Pancho Villa’s grave, the famous hero of the Mexican revolution. His head has disappeared. This is what Juan, obscure spanish poet, reveals to Nicolas Moog during their meeting at the Hamburg Book Festival. Overwhelmed by his depressing daily life, the author decides to join the poet in Mexico and to go with him on the trail of the mysterious relic. This is how a harmless autobiographical chronicle turns into an epic journey where Mexican bandits cross paths with disillusioned drunkenness and metaphysical questioning. But is Juan really who he claims to be?

Used to roundtrips in central America, the author and musician Nicolas Moog is landing this time in Mexico, no longer for concerts and meetings with the blues and folk scene of the Southern United States – as usual – but driven by the fierce desire to find a relic dear to his heart.
