The city of Tacloban will never be the same after Typhoon Haiyan. Bebeth is looking for the bodies of her children, trying to put their DNA against those buried in a mass grave. Larry, having lost his wife, is looking for consolation in a group of dedicated Catholics who are carrying a huge cross through the city streets. Erwin and his older brother are trying to hide the truth about their parents' death from their sister. As if their bereavement wasn't enough, fate puts more obstacles on their path... And, at the same time, connects the protagonists, who were strangers until now. How does one go back to living everyday life after what happened? Should you turn to faith, keep searching for the bodies of your loved ones, or maybe cut yourself off entirely from this overwhelming tragedy?
