****SPOILERS**** While on a treasure hunt for Aztec gold in the mountains of New Mexico a group of collage students unearth this strange box that's been buried in a cave with strange lettering and symbols carved into it. Tinkering around with the box it's discovered in a hidden compartment this jar of human blood that hasn't hardened or turned to dust for over 500 years! As you would have expected one of the klutzy collage students Amber, Sarah Carter, accidentally spills the blood on the ground when fooling around with the jar. That sets off a number of events in the world where the sun disappears from the heavens and the temperature starts to drop dramatically.

It's became apparent that the blood being spilled is what caused the darkness as well as global cooling to accrue and to bring things back to normal there has to be an genuine Aztec human blood sacrifice preformed to refill the jar with blood and thus that's the cost of being one life to be taken-Aztec style- in the saving of billions of outers. And as luck or hard luck would have it it's Amber, by drawing straws, who's the one chosen to make the ultimate scarface! The problem is will it, Amber's death, bring the sun back or not or if in killing her will not be a act of saving the human race but an act of cold blooded murder!

****SPOILERS**** Opting to do Amber in to save the world the results do or don't seemed to justify what her fellow collage students did. The sun does majestically pops up in the sky but was it Amber being killed or just some strange and unexpected eclipse that caused it to disappear. It's Amber's friends who now have to live the rest of their lives in not really knowing if what they did, in killing Amber, save the world or condemned them as murderers, in the world that they are to inhabit after their long gone, for all eternity!
