Three young brothers, Darwin (14), Abet (13), and Yoyong (10), live together with their ailing grandmother, Gloria (60’s) in Mount Diwalwal, Compostela Valley, a gold mining haven in the Southern part of Philippines. The brothers juggle between being students and gold-mining laborers to save money to transfer to a government-sponsored housing program. The story centers on YOYONG, a mischievous and playful boy who always makes fun of his classmates at school and makes up stories to draw attention. The worse, lying becomes his habit until everyone ignores him. One day, Yoyong discovers a possible riot might happen underground between two opposing groups of miners. He immediately warns his brothers, but they don’t believe him. Few minutes later, the tunnel collapses trapping a lot of miners including Yoyong’s brothers. The tragic event pushes Yoyong to undergoe an emotional journey that transforms him from being a liar to a hero.
