Curandero is a compilation of true experiences interwoven into a fictitious story that traces one man’s harrowing journey into the realm of mind-body medicine and beyond.
Stefan Campeau is a high-flying journalist who appears to have it all. But a giant anvil called fate crashes down on the handsome writer, leaving him terminally ill, destitute, and unsightly. The best allopathic treatment available does not produce a cure, and a bitter, frustrated Stefan escapes up the coast to the scenic town of Acantilado del Mar to face his death.
He befriends Samantha, a beautiful woman who agrees to take his dog when the time comes. But to Stefan’s dismay, her next door neighbor turns out to be another doctor—mysterious, prescient oncologist Dr. Miguel Calderón, a.k.a. “The Curandero.”
The alternative doctor coaxes Stefan back into treatment, and the patient is forced to uncover one shattering truth after another about himself, including that he gave up on living long before he ever became ill.
But as Stefan slowly recaptures some glimmers of joy in being alive, his transformation begins to adversely affect others. Samantha finds that her picture-perfect life starts to crumble, and the methods of “The Curandero” come under increasing fire from people in the town.
Curandero is a story about embracing existence with all its pain and mystery and of the inherent value of every life—no matter how long or short.
