During the summer of 2003, two life-long fans of the Chicago Cubs realize that their favorite team is really cursed. They become obsessed with undoing this curse, lest it undermine their team’s march to its first World Series in almost sixty years and its first Major League Championship since 1908. Unbeknownst to them, the curse had its origins in an Old Testament prophesy that has had a profound effect on both the history of the world and the game of baseball. In the process, it traces a dark, forbidding path from the Holy Land, through the Roman Empire, medieval Europe, West Africa, and pre-Columbian America, before leaving an imprint on the United States and its national pastime.
