A strenuous journey to the mountains of Mindoro. An accidental meeting that changed the course of history for a tribe in need. They are the Irayas, one of the seven tribes of the peace-loving Mangyans, that captured the heart of one woman (Doña Bea Zobel de Ayala). This is the love story of a people who have been shunned by the outside world but was embraced by the person who would move mountains for them.
For centuries, the tribe prospered along the coastal areas of Oriental Mindoro until migrant settlers drove them from their land and forced them to live in the mountains. From then on, they lived a nomadic life, moving from place to place, sleeping in makeshift huts, living on what little and whatever they can get their hands on.
Like other indigenous people in the world, they have been treated as second class citizens-- often exploited, neglected, and discriminated against by lowlanders. Denied of basic services for decades, the tribe struggled with their daily life. Uneducated and uncivilized, they lived in mortal fear of the Tagalogs. With the threat of being forced out of the land they live in always a possibility, they are praying for someone who could somehow end their plight. Time is running out.
Witness a different kind of love story which will spell the beginning of a new and better life for the Iraya Mangyans.
