Two men are willing to fight and die for the love of the same woman in this romantic adventure story. With colorfully costumed native dances and rituals, the men wait for their chance to be with the most beautiful women on the island. One is a rejected suitor, the other a tribal chief, and both constantly follow the woman in an obsessive ritual (which in these days is referred to as stalking). The fathers of the two rivals meet and remember their own rivalry before their sons were born. This Tagalog language film was the first official entry at the Venice Film Festival for the Philippines.
