The Last of the Just

Manuel Carballo

After becoming implicated in a murder case, and the police’s prime suspect, Teo is forced to flee his home in Mexico after being pursued by strange men who try to kill him. While trying to find out who is after him and why, he stumbles upon evidence linking his date of birth to a millenary sect that believes in the existence of the 36 chosen ones: the 36 Just.  The sect prophesizes that Teo is the last of the just and that the fate of humanity is in his hands. There is another group of individuals that have sworn their lives to defend these just men.  Teo, trapped in a religious war that has lasted for thousands of years, must try to stay alive long enough to discover his true destiny.
