Set in the 16th century, this is the story of Lapu Lapu, the first Filipino hero, in his battle against Spanish colonizers.
As the ruler of Mactan and head of the confederation of seven villages, Lapu Lapu (Lito Lapid) has always been just.
He follows the tribal traditions and consults the elders for his decisions, even in his choice of Bulakna (Joyce Jimenez), for his wife.
But Raha Humabon and Datu Zula, leaders from other villages despise him and they want to conquer the village of Mactan, launching several attacks but always failing.
When Ferdinand Magellan lands in the island where Raha Humabon governs, he makes a pact to help Humabon attack Mactan and kill Lapu Lapu.
