The Gift of Barong is a story of two generations of Filipino-American surfers as they travel to the Philippines for the first time to experience first-hand how it is to be Filipino. Dan Moreno and Jon Villar are the two surfers who never find value in their own heritage, until now. Their trip to the Philippines is a total immersion in a unfamiliar culture, which they have relied on hearsay and written articles. They will come face to face with the real Filipinos in their own native space. Dan and Jon will integrate with the communities, play Filipino music, eat native fruits and delicacies and surf the islands with the locals.

At the end of their trip, both surfers will provide us with highlights of their physical, emotional and spiritual experiences. The Gift of Barong is not only a surfing odyssey, but also a journey of culture reconnection, identity crisis and personal healing.
