The play centers around a brother and sister's journey to the island of Palawan, in the Philippines, to spread their father's ashes. As a typhoon lands upon their arrival, they take shelter in a café across from the airport. The suspicious owner of the café and his mysterious granddaughter serve Filipino food and weave stories about aswangs (Filipino witches) - revealing secrets long abandoned. When one of the travelers discovers that she has supernatural powers, will she embrace her inner good or evil?
