Synopsis: Kanana Kanu depicts two parallel stories which tells John’s experience and his cultural travelogue. The other story revolves around the oral narratives of the I-Kalingas. This particular mythology embodies the true essence of the I-Kalingas’ core cultural values.
John a young man, half- American and half- Kalinga travels for a vacation in his mother’s birthplace at the village named Magobya. Unknowingly, he immerses himself in the culture of his mom’s place- living in a simple, practical and natural lifestyle. Through his village experiences he learns how to do things he never actualize in the U.S.
When the story is chanted by bard singers new experience is open to John as though he journeys to another dimension of time and space. John see vividly the story unfolds when the ever outstanding beauty of Lagunnawa meet the heroic warrior named Fanna. His immersion and cultural re-rooting helps him to know more about himself and his true cultural identity.
