"IN BANGKA HA UT SIN DUWAH SAPAH" or "THE BOAT BETWEEN TWO RIVERS", a story inspired by an episode of Wish Ko Lang entitled "Nanay Langoy". The story is about a young mother who swims from one end of the river to the other using a makeshift bangka just to put her two kids to school. Problem arises when at the other side of the river, government military forces are holding camp while on the other side of the river are where the extremist Muslim rebels are holed up. What happens when these two forces clash? Will the mother still be able to give her kids a good education?
