The drama of his death and his mother's love is quite something. Imagine a mother in Mexico about 900 years ago with this 5 or 6 year old star child. Te kid had a super large brain tiny eyes, and barely had a nose. The villagers probably would have scolded her right out of town, thus she hides with him in a cave. Super catholic mexico peer group pressure tossed her out of town.
Nothing the town could do would ever break the bond of mother and son.
I am reminded of the scene in ET when the kids are watching ET die in the bathtub all sick. They don't know what to do, and their mother comes in and freaks out.
The mother of star boy watches over him until he dies. then she buries him, then she kills herself. Why would she kill herself? The town hated her for having this child. No doubt the church would have declared her some kind of evil person, and her son the product of a union with satan.
Sometimes real life is more dramatic than anything hollywood would ever come up with.
An amazing story.
