Who brought back the word?

But why do your soldiers take our fish?

The catch will be useful to us

on the voyage.

-How many boats do you have?

-What you see there.

We will need all of them.

-The king has means of payment?

-No. But it will please the gods.

And be very displeasing

to the boat owners.

Seize this man who puts men before gods.


You do acknowledge that l am your king?

Kings have always seemed far away.

Small in the distance like wars.

And defeated kings even smaller.

Listen, old man, tell your people

to fill every boat with supplies

and anything else that will be useful to us

in the new land.

-But how will we live after you go?

-Your people are coming with me.

To cross the water to their death?

lf crossing the waters frightens you,

then you know little of Hunac Kell.

Every soldier that you see here

was once a hundred,

and their women are now slaves.

To my people, slavery may sound better

than the unknown.

l have ordered you and your people

to come with me.

Now tell them !

ln spite of your youth,

you have the habit of command,

but habit is not always enough.

You dare to disobey?

This is Balam, king and son of kings

to the ninth generation.

And a stranger here.

My people respect the voice they know.

-Then give them the word.

-lf l refuse?

-Ordinarily, l kill only as a duty.

-Leave him !

-Who is this girl?

-My daughter, lxchel.

lnstruct your father,

he does not argue with the king.

And has the king the right to order

our people to their death?

Until today this was a place of peace.

l will not surrender to Hunac Kell.

We must go to a new land

and grow strong and then come back.

Men alone cannot build a new race

in a new land.

That is why l need your people,

your women and your children.
