A thousand years ago, the Bajau built magnificent sea vessels. Fifty years ago, they still navigated the sea with these beautiful houseboats. Today, there are no more trees to make houseboats. The Bajau are forced to live on land. 'Sayaw sa Alon (Dancing on Waves)' combines the traditional dance and music of the Sulu Archipelago to dramatize the rapid transformation of the Bajaus from sea dwellers to land-based nomads. Through the tradition of mystical dance the documentary follows the Bajau's migration from the Sulu Archipelago of the Southern Philippines to the slums along railroad tracks of Laguna in the Northern Philippines.
