A tribe lives peacefully at the other side of the volcano. Suddenly, the volcano awakens and they are forced to leave their home. But a boy and his family come back to the other side of the volcano. Tough but emotional characters and the way of depicting them are harmonized with traditional music of the Philippines. In addition, the introspective views on humanity, nature, and the environment are worthy of attention.
