    • Synopsis
    • K’na is a T’boli princess growing up amidst a century-old clan war, which has separated the T’bolis into two villages on the North and South banks of Lake Sebu. At a young age, K’na, is trained in the art of weaving t’nalak, a traditional cloth with designs granted through dreams by the goddess of abaca. When K’na becomes the village’s dreamweaver, her father, the datu, decides to put an end to the warring clans of Lake Sebu once and for all by arranging a marriage between K’na and Kagis, the heir to the throne of the North. Meanwhile, K’na has fallen in love with Silaw, a childhood friend whose family supplies the finest abaca fibers to the dreamweavers. Silaw leaves love messages for her by tying abaca threads to a tree outside K’na’s window. As the wedding grows near, a revolution brews among those who do not believe in the joining of the two royal clans. On the night before the wedding, a battle ensues on the lake. Silaw – who is among the rebels – is about to be slain by the enemy, but Kagis steps in to save him. Because of this, K’na agrees to marry Kagis and put an end to the fighting.
