One of the Mayans, not wanting to continue in his fathers business, involves himself in government and discovers he can associate with the rich and powerful and be favored by them with offers of property and power. He finds himself obliged to support one or another of two powerful factions. The first part of the story covers his social and political life in helping build a new city. Later, he is obliged to go to the land of the Aztecs to learn warfare and return to his homeland to avenge an earlier defeat at the hands of the Quiche. Oza, the Mayan, finds that treachery by one of the Mayan leaders leads to the threat of an invasion by an Aztec army, even after the leader is murdered by a rival. The only solution Oza offers the political leaders who were pawns in the treachery and bankruptcy of the nation is exile. While one group flees further south, Oza leads his group to the Pacific Ocean where they can sail away to distant lands for refuge.
