After a long search, Banaue (Nora Aunor) and her tribe make the mountains of the northern Philippines their new home. As they are toiling on the land they have claimed, trouble arises when another tribe tries to assert their right to the territory. This leads to a bloody battle and the death of most of the men in Banaue’s tribe. Sickened by the cowardice of Sadek (Christopher de Leon), she leaves her wounded lover and gathers a few women from her tribe to seek revenge. She unfortunately falls captive to the merciless leader, Aruk (Ronaldo Valdez) and she unexpectedly finds herself falling for the man who is responsible for her father’s death. Smitten with Banaue, Aruk eventually lets her go, on the condition that she return. She is now made to face a decision that will affect her tribe and the two men she loves.
