A rural town unknowingly goes on with their mundane activities while strong forces of nature silently creeps in to challenge their existence. Meanwhile, the filmmaker traces back his roots while preparing himself for the worst after the typhoon.


The idea for the story comes from the personal experience of the director who lived the Haiyan typhoon’s consequences in his hometown.
