In this movie, FPJ played the role of Flavio, a “Panday” (or blacksmith) whose village and land are under the reign of the tyrant played by Max Alvarado as Lizardo. When a meteor fell from the sky one night witnessed by Tata Temyong (Lito Anzures), he forged the metal from the meteor together with an old bell into a dagger, the balaraw. When he raises the dagger to the sky, it magically grows into a sword. He uses this magical sword to hunt down Lizardo’s men in the village with the help of Tatang Temyong, his young apprentice Lando (Bentot Jr.) and Monica (Liz Alindogan) as they free the land.
On their way to fight the evil Lizardo, they came across some of Lizardo’s henchmens which are also supernatural beings; a wizard, a siyokoy (mermen) and a group of zombies where Tata Temyong and Monica ended up captured in the forest and was brought to Lizardo’s fortress. Lando found refuge in a hut haunted by a vampire, in which Flavio finds and defeats it with his dagger.
