A coming of age story set in a remote village in the Philippines, about growing up, discovering yourself and the impact of colonialism on native peoples and their lives.

The Philippines, 100 years ago. A boy called Samkad wants to become a man. He is desperate to be given his own shield, spear and axe.

His best friend, Luki, wants to be a warrior too - but she is a girl and that is forbidden. Then a new boy arrives in the village and everything changes. He brings news that a people called 'Americans' are bringing war right to his home.
