The Wrath of Guayota

Guayota is the god of the volcanos. He got mad to the human beings and killed all of them, but in order to exist he needed to keep alive at least one person to worship him. So he spared the Keeper, that lives alone on the Island of his vulcano. As if he was in a documentary, now gone mad in his solitude, the Keeper speaks to the camera showing and telling what happened to the world.
