"Mamalarang! Witch!" These are words that have followed young Renata for most of her life. Living in the squalor of Manila's Smokey Mountain - a slum within a garbage dump - Renata uses her power to communicate with insects to help her with collecting recyclable rubbish. As her family ekes out a living, the flip side of Manila is one where glamorous Beauty Queens reign supreme. When a flamboyant talent coach spots Renata in the market, he gives her the chance to be plucked from poverty into the heady world of Filipino pageants. But even as she is groomed in poise and beauty, her past and the plight of the poor in Manila haunts her. And her secret power just keeps strengthening. Will the love of a fellow pageant girl help Renata find the strength to set her power free?
