Synopsis: Chris is the son of the owners of a lodge in Coron, Palawan. Because of a shortage in eggs in the town, he gets encouraged to go into growing organic chickens. He undergoes trainings and situates the farm in a property owned by his father,. Just when the business is about to take off, Chin’s father suffers a stroke. Chin is unable to be beside him right away as a storm hits Coron. Some of the bookings they have at the lodge are cancelled, and 200 out of the 500 chickens they have at the farm are dead. As funds are scarce and hard to get by, a corporation offers to buy the farm from him, apparently because a mall is to be built nearby. Chin is also offered to run for a political position , in exchange for him divesting in some of his businesses. Then his father dies and his wife leaves for a trip to the US where she intends to get some work. Chin decides to continue with the farm and to manage the lodge at the same time, with difficulty. His perseverance pays off as the tourism business picks up and he gets regular buyers for the farm’s eggs and dressed chicken products. His mother recovers from her heart ache and goes back to managing the farm, while his wife helps him find new markets for their farm products.
