Sneak Preview of SAKUNTALA
It is sometime 2080, after a global plague and when nuclear weapons were destructive to mankind, groups of ethnic tribes have survived in the Philippines. Sakuntala, believed to be the daughter of an unknown deity, belongs to a group where spirituality is at the center of their core while Dusyanta, head of the other classified circle, belongs to another where the urbanized influences are their trademarks.
In a mystical island gravitated with caves and stones while waters on beaches have been affected by the chemical substances, Dusyanta, while hunting beasts, sees Sakuntala.
He falls in love with Sakuntala and the love plot starts. Love is tested. Love is twisted. Love is suppressed. Love is left behind and forgotten. What is the true meaning of LOVE between Sakuntala and Dusyanta?
