Early 20th century Philippines. The sounds of war signal the arrival of the Americans. A mother and son flee to the mountains, hoping for a quiet life. One day, the son discovers a wounded woman in the middle of the forest, and decides to bring her home, despite the silent objection of his mother. Learning that the woman is pregnant, the mother starts to distance herself from them with a growing fear

for their lives. Eventually, the son develops a relationship with the woman, while the

mother grows weak and ill, and dies. Soon after, the woman gives birth to a son. The years pass. Man, woman and child live in isolation from the growing chaos all over the country. But a coming storm soon threatens their existence, and American troops draw nearer.
