Deborah, a spirited young teacher of English as a Second Language, flees NYC's ’70 fiscal crisis, heading for Mexico’s Yucatán peninsula. Her destination? A small hamlet/construction camp adjoining a spectacular undeveloped beach: Cancún.
Hilarious experiences follow harrowing ones as a class for four becomes a school for four hundred. Then come love, adventure and misadventure too.
