Angry, Zirra breaks the alliance between sorcerers and humans by casting a spell on Tristan that makes him her pleasure slave living inside a jewelry box unless she calls him. Only true love can break the spell.
Fifteen earth centuries later in Santa Fe, antiquities dealer Julia “Jules” Anderson purchases a jewelry box at Kreuger Flea Market. When she opens the small box Tristan appears in her kitchen.
