A woman goes on a search for a Mayan shaman who will teach her ancient principles of magic.

She is being trailed by a detective hired by her fiancé. He's a former photojournalist traumatized by what he saw in Hiroshima.

The photojournalist joins her in the search for the Mayan shaman, and falls in love with her; the feeling is not reciprocated.

When she finds the shaman, she drinks a potion which empowers her to do magic.

The potion has life-changing effects on her and her relationship with her companion. They have strange experiences which are brought about by magic.
