Araw is the heiress of the Mactan Tribe. She is burdened with the responsibility of bearing the next successor of her tribe when she learns from a Babaylan, or Shamen, that her brother, Lapu Lapu, has been cursed with infertility by a rival tribe. Araw comes to accept her fate until the arrival of Spanish explorers, led by Ferdinand Magellan. Magellan comes to the Mactan Islands with the hopes of converting the natives into Christianity, but his second-in-command, Alonzo, has ulterior motives: conquest. With the universe set in motion, Araw is forced to make a decision: “Does she reach for the moon, or join her place amongst the stars?”
Join our expedition April 29 and April 30!
