Pase Lo Que Pase (I Will Always Find You)

Fátima lives in Tegucigalpa, where she must fight for her life every single day. Guillermo lives in Bogotá, where he is told repeatedly that he does not belong. They both find two halves of an ancient, sentient map that compels them to take a journey to meet each other. But what starts out as a mystic quest turns out to be a horrific nightmare. Pase Lo Que Pase is a horror play that explores the question: what does it mean to be terrified of your own culture?
