Dalina’s journey of love begins in one of the most difficult slums in the world – ‘Ulingan’ in Manila. ‘Ulingan’ means ‘charcoal factory’ and most residents make their living through illegal charcoal making. Here, children play, breathe, and work in smoggy conditions without protection and many are too poor to go to school. On their off-days, the children head over to the dumpsite to scavenge for ‘pag pag’, which is fast food that does not decompose after being dumped. Dalina is thrown out of her comfort zone as she tries to encourage one little boy to go to school. Together with her fellow volunteer and mentor, Syahirah, Dalina makes her first attempt to do volunteer work in Manila.
