Synopsis
Plus Ultra is the motto of the Spanish state. This slogan was used to encourage navigators to conquer new lands, forgetting the warning from Greek mythology: Non Terrae Plus Ultra (There is no land beyond here). The Canary Islands —testing ground for the tactics utilized in the colonization of the Americas— becomes the setting for a tale about this land.
