Palawan Island in the Philippines: Medsinu succeeds his father as shaman, in a community living in the forest and pressured by the modern world. His nephew Issad falls ill and can no longer work the land, so he joins the militia of the local "captain". But he has to choose whether or not to obey the shaman’s order: to refuse medical treatment in town.
