An adaptation of the short story for children in Kinaray-a of the same title by Michael Q. Orquejo that was entered as an entry in the 2011 Padya Kinaray-a (Kinaray-a Literary Prize) sponsored by Balay Sugidanun.

A simple, familiar, and poignant story of friendship and loss, of the need for a symbiotic relationship between humans and other inhabitants in our ecosystem.

Illustrated by Vince Riel Angelo Serrano and Timothy Joshua De Guzman and set in animation together with Mark Cañega, students of De La Salle-College of St. Benilde, Manila. Narration/translation by Genevieve Asenjo, and produced for Balay Sugidanun on its 3rd-year anniversary.

Two more to come in early 2014 and we would greatly appreciate your support. We intend to do free screening on both public and private schools to pump up conversation and community-engagement on climate change, replanting -- among other highlighted issues.
