To revive her cat Littlefoot, 15-year-old Rara Balete performs a Bugtong-Bugtong, a magical chant passed down from her ancestors. Bugtong-Bugtong summons the spirits of all things, which allows souls to find their final resting place (tahanan).

Littlefoot is revived as a sprinter, a stray spirit who can “sprint” to Galangmundo, a parallel dimension made up of long, interconnecting rivers where stray spirits reside.

As Rara is pulled into the strange new world, she learns her abilities amount to so much more. Being the only one able to perform the chant, it is now up to her to help the spirits rest in peace before it is too late.
