Maya and the Three tells the story of a rebellious warrior princess named Maya who is about to celebrate her fifteenth birthday and her coronation when everything abruptly changes as the gods of the underworld make a shocking revelation. Maya’s life is forfeit to the god of war — a price she must pay for her family’s secret past. But if she refuses, the whole world will suffer including her family and friends. So she embarks on a quest to fulfill an ancient prophecy that foretells the coming of three great warriors who will help her defeat the gods and save humankind, according to the streamer.

The nine epic chapters weave together Aztec, Maya, and Inca mythology, and modern-day Caribbean culture.
