Amihan lives on Culion Island, where some of the inhabitants -

including her mother - have leprosy.

Ami loves her home - with its blue seas and lush forests,

Culion is all she has ever known. But the arrival of malicious

government official Mr Zamora changes her world forever: islanders

untouched by sickness are forced to leave.

Banished across the sea, she's desperate to return, and finds

a strange and fragile hope in a colony of butterflies. Can they lead

her home before it's too late?
