Synopsis: The matriarch, Senora Pina (Mona Lisa), is a selfish and strong-willed woman who favors the younger son, Ellis (Christopher de Leon) over the older Loren (Phillip Salvador) who is blamed for the death of his father. Ellis grows up to be cowardly and spoiled while Loren learns to become responsible and kind despite his growing resentment towards his mother.

When the mother learns that she is about to die, she turns over the ownership of their farm to Ellis. This causes a bitter quarrel that ends up with Loren turning his back on the family. Loren’s wife, heavy with child, tries to intercede with the matriarch and meets an accidental death. This triggers Loren’s vendetta. He seeks the support of the town bullies.

His gang kidnaps, rapes and kills Zita (Carmi Martin), Ellis’s girlfriend. Ellis summons his fraternity brothers from the city to help him. What started as a family feud escalates into a large scale war that involves the whole town. People start getting killed. The matriarch regrets her deeds and can no longer control the situation. She dies alone in her room. Finally, the two brothers meet in the forest.
