The time of rain approaches and the raindrops were getting ready to pour out from Mother Cloud’s embrace. All but one of the raindrops were excited. The last raindrop was not yet sure where she wanted to go.
Follow the last little raindrop's journey in Mga Munting Patak ng Ulan, a sweet story about the exceptional bond of mother and child, where love is not only sharing an embrace but also leaving one to pursue one’s own destiny.
