About The Sugar Skull:
Perk is just your normal, everyday average guy. He could do with a little adventure in his life. Yet, all he wants is some down time and a vacation. However, fate and the universe have other plans for him. On a whim, Perk heads to the mystical town of Old Mesilla, NM to pick up a VW Microbus for his roommate. Little did he know that he was entering into a paranormal vortex of outlandish Mexican folklore and scandalous black market deals. All of which seem to link to a phantasmal nuisance which resembles a beloved relic. Along the way, he meets the beautiful and dynamic Maya, a young Latina woman with a spicy personality. Everything Perk knows about girls is thrown out of the window with this intoxicating new personality in his life. Perk may seem average but, beneath the ho-hum facade, the wheels are turning in his head. Will he be able to save Maya and her family's business from the hauntings that threaten to obliterate it?
