Mabuhayballs are tennis ball-sized spheres made by the young activists of CYASF, a youth organisation for sustainable development in Rizal in the Philippines.

They are used to clean up contaminated and polluted waters, much to the delight of the fish whose wishes and concerns are brought to the screen here.

Concept, script, voices: Anne, Cherry Ann, Danica, Dennis, Mary Joy, Philippe, Sigfried, Timon
