Busong is the indigenous Palawan concept of Karma--nature reacts instantly to man's disrespect of nature and other men. Punay was born with wounds on her feet so she cannot step on the ground. Her brother Angkarang carries her as he searches for a healer to cure Punay. Throughout their journey, different people help Angkarang carry his sister--a woman looking for her husband, a fisherman who lost his boat, and a young man who is searching for himself--and each one meets their fate.
