Alex Preston and Ray Shivera, two students from the University of Miami, Florida are part of a college group on a summer archaeological tour of Peru, South America in 1986 with their very popular and well-like professor, Dr. Norman S. Sherman. The tour takes the group eventually to Nazca, Peru, and the lines of Nazca, made famous for being thought of as possible landing fields and symbolic markers for extraterrestrial visitors from other worlds. The Nazca Plain in fact stood as a curious strip of land the Inca Indians had used as a painter’s canvas upon which they had scribbled twisted patterns and lines into the hard red desert rock. From the ground the lines were meaningless, and as roads went nowhere. Yet from the air they formed patterns and shapes: a condor, a fish, a spider, a monkey. They were believed to have been etched by the Inca themselves, for their gods who they hoped would see them.

Alex and Ray, while idling some free time in a jeep one late afternoon and traveling the lines as if they were roads, suddenly spot an ancient artifact, a monument to the sun god, Viracocha, in the distance that in no way has any business being present on the Nazca Plain. Swearing they must be imagining it-- that the ancient stone monolith could not be real and out there-- they go to check it out.  And that is the last anyone sees of them until the following morning.  Norman questions them when they are eventually found as to what happened, where they'd go, what did they experience. Alex and Ray would not tell him, not then; he would know someday, they told him, when the time came.

Nine years later with the approach of the Christmas holiday in 1995 . . . the time came.
