Change has finally begun in the town of Lagros. Mayor Joseph Santiago (Rocco Nacino) has managed to stick to his principles of governance, ordering a crackdown on jueteng operations and gradually bringing in progress with his projects. But when an epidemic hits Lagros and the municipal health center is in dire need of supploes, corrupt Governor Antonio Rubio (Pen Medina) forces the Mayor to accept a compromise deal. The town is then deluged by storm, which turns into a massive flash flood due to decades illegal logging sustained bu the Governor and his mistress. How Mayor Santiago and his staff respond to the disaster, even with their own families in danger, paints a moving picture of what political leadership can be.
