Through the words and experience of indigenous peoples, this film shows the environmental impact of mining road construction (deforestation, severe soil erosion and damage to the Sumbiling river watersheds) on the Bulanjao range, a biodiversity hotspot on southern Palawan island (the Philippines). Mining activities taking place at high elevations will increase the risk of landslides to an unprecedented level. Also the eco-tourism potential of this mountain forest is likely to be jeopardized. Furthermore, some of the areas - around and inside the Bulanjao range - include sacred and worship sites that are regarded by the local indigenous people as physical evidence of mythological events and are associated with important cosmological principles. The local inhabitants perceive the destruction of these historical and natural landmarks as an obliteration of their history and collective memories of the past.
