This short film follows world renowned archeologist La Stef (Stephanie Sauer) and her local assistant Miss Ella (Ella Diaz, PhD) as they recover the sacred scrolls of the Royal Chicano Air Force (RCAF). The scrolls document Sacramento's first traditional mesoamerican ceremonies, as reinterpreted by local elders, scholars and members of the RCAF in 1975 as an attempt to heal some bad cultural wounds. With the scrolls rumored to be buried somewhere in Sacramento, La Stef and Miss Ella set out to scour the city and its history in search of the almost forgotten documentaries.
