    • Fifteen-year-old Maya works with her father on an isolated farm in the Philippines. While venturing deep into the mountains, she spots an endangered Philippine Eagle, a protected national symbol, in the forest. Maya shoots and kills the bird. Unaware of her crime, she brings the carcass home, hoping to prove herself to her father. Soon after, authorities start a manhunt to find the eagle killer. During the investigation, the inept local police stumble upon another disturbing case involving an abandoned passenger bus in the middle of nowhere. Meanwhile, Maya’s father is arrested, and Maya eludes the police by hiding in the forest. She hears the call of an eagle, she follows the sound, which leads her to a grim discovery.
