 A battle of strength, power, emotions, and intellect, this character-driven adaptation depicts two beings clashing with each other, just like the way Bernardo continues to fight the two clashing boulders until today, as per the epic.

Their rivalry unveils an account of Bernardo's life and the story behind “The Legend of Bernardo Carpio.”

This action-drama epic exudes an old, heroic, and mythical feel. It is an intimate account of Bernardo's struggle underground and his interaction with the sorceress, a hired gun who apparently is also a victim of the Spaniards' abusive rule. After an introductory sequence featuring Wawa River and The 2 Clashing Boulders, the motion comics treatment continues with the actual layout of the comics as seen from the opening sequence animated accordingly.

The duel between Bernardo and the sorceress works like a clash between two opposing elements. The production shot and recorded professional actors with the edited live-action footage serving as guide and inspiration for the animators.
