Her parents, both were also doctors in the Health Service Program established by the revolutionary movement to provide medical assistance to the people in rural communities. Unfortunately, her parents were kidnapped, tortured, and killed by a state-formed paramilitary troop. Julia learns about the death of her parents when the movement’s branch in Australia contacts her. She then decides to go to Mindanao to retrieve the remains of her parents.
