Summary: Mga Munting Tinig is the inspiring story of Melinda (Alessandra de Rossi), a young woman who comes to teach in the remote and impoverished rural town of Malawig. The young teacher arrives to find a land rich in coconut and rice fields, and a people depleted of hope. Immediately, Melinda encounters problems as the school’s principal is mainly interested in selling ice candy treats while her fellow teachers prefer to discuss sex and graft rather than pay attention to the students. The parents on the other hand are more interested in making their children work in the fields than really learning and consider their youthful dreams as worthless distractions. Amidst the townsfolk criticism, Melinda stirs the depressive and bleak spirits of the provincial town. She says poverty does not make victims of people--dreams can be made real. She pursues a small project with the students of the school. Melinda and her students join a singing competition and their small voices unleash the strength and joy of this moving film
