Mariposa Intersections is the love story of Rafael and Gabriela, two young idealists from different social strata who find themselves at opposite ends of a defining cause, which is the Mexican Utilities proposal of a nuclear power plant on Lago Patzcuaro in Michoacan, Mexico. It is also the story of a group of international individuals who, like the Monarch butterflies, are drawn together to form an organism that is bigger then the sum of its parts. Their common cause unites them for a short but intense time. Together they fight the proposed nuke plant in this historic region in the center of Mexico. It’s a universal story about the fight for the preservation of a way of life and the environment against the insatiable appetite for money, jobs and the need for electricity.

screenwriter for award-winning TV series Street Legal, Traders, Bliss, and The Associates
Bruno Huber’s timely tale about a struggle against the development of a nuclear power plant brings together a cast of disparate international characters, but the standout is the country of Mexico itself. A deep sense of the history, the culture, the geography and present day politics underpins a story that unfolds principally in Michoacan, at beautiful Lake Patzcuaro, which the author clearly knows and loves. An enjoyable and informative read.”
