Forty Crows

Eddie McGrath is a reluctant graduate student at loose ends after the nearly
simultaneous death of his father and almost certain release from the threat of
being drafted to serve in Viet Nam. Having been captivated by the Rivera
Murals in his native Detroit he finds himself traveling to Mexico City to
research the great muralists and extend his no longer necessary student
draft status. Far out of his comfort zone, Eddie is drawn by the inscrutable
beauty Ursula into a rag-tag group of would-be student revolutionaries,
living in the shadow of the Tlateloco massacre of 1968. Torn between his blue
-collared urban midwestern upbringing and the urgent roiling world of
Mexico City, Eddie must negotiate both before he can become himself in either.
