Based on a file from the Archive of the Indies in Seville, a copy of which is in his possession, Pedro Sierra turns José de Sierra, applicant for the Commandery of Valladolid, Yucatán, in 1710, into a soul that arrives on November 2 – the day of the dead– to which his house went, he finds in it who he supposes is a pirate, understands his spiritual situation and receives the souls of his wife, his in-laws, officials, friends, a friar and a merchant. The new owner of the Casa del Encomendero makes them a traditional offering and they agree to meet in November of the following year. The souls of the friar and the merchant do not return to their dimension, they stay and find more souls that roam Valladolid, in such a way that the following November 2, the house of Erik Álvarez is visited by more spirits, among them those of several pirates who were in this area. The friar and the merchant warn that there are thousands of souls who want to present themselves in a bellicose manner; they manage to stop it momentarily, but the atmosphere in Valladolid becomes rare, people know that something is going to happen and three months later thousands of souls of Mayans, Spaniards, mestizos, blacks and others killed in the so-called Caste War arrive, demanding that they be listen and do justice, exposing each party the injustices that were committed against them, hearing from the other parties what they, the claimants, committed; finally understand what happened and the causes of the horrors that were committed, withdrawing to leave the city in peace, which allowed the world festival of souls to be organized, with representations in Chichén Itzá.
