Jose doesn't know that his life is about to change forever.  And not in a good way.  His tiny Honduran village is all he knows.  He knows all the people and knows all the houses as well as he knows his own.  A storm is coming but it is like nothing that has ever hit Hondoras.  Hurricane Mitch is the worst storm to hit the area in over 200 years.  When the rain and wind finally end, Jose cannot believe what he sees.  A mudslide has wiped out the whole village.  All that is left standing is his house and a squat on the other side of the village.  Where are all the people?  Jose must step up and do what he can to save his village.
