With a Jewish father and a Baptist mother, Daniel Fisher grows into a confused and aliented young man,
uncertain of his place in the world. His search for identity takes him from the Bible belt of the South
to the Negev Desert of Israel. Along the way he stumbles into love with Mia Murphy, a fellow seeker and soul mate. To obtain
the missing piece that will complete their lives, Daniel and Mia must travel to a tiny village in the lowlands of Guatemala.
Their search ends when they find an orphaned baby who needs them as much as they need her. They name the child Quetzal after
the elusive Central American bird that has haunted Daniel since childhood.
