In 1953, the quiet Mexican town of
Guerrero Viejo disappeared beneath
the swirling waters of a man-made
flood. Several thousand people were
forced from their homes when the
enormous Falcon Dam project
created a reservoir, the result of a
joint project between Mexico and the
United States.


It was thought that the town was lost
forever. But a recent severe drought
caused the reservoir water level to fall
dramatically, revealing the remnants
of Guerrero Viejo. Six people have
moved back into the town, including
Julia Zamora, who is living in the
same home she was forced to leave
45 years ago.


Some former residents want the town
to be preserved. But once the rainfall
returns, the town could again
disappear underwater . . .
