Follow the adventures of endearing 6-year-old Mateo, a farmer’s son from Umingan, Pangasinan. Teo meets odd people and stumbles into strange situations, but in every encounter his admirable character shines through. Teo’s example inspires children to love God and others in everyday life. Teo is alarmed. From his window he can't see the giant parol that Ka Iking and Ka Ostang hung in their acacia tree. Where could the star be? And why is it important that the big star continue to shine, day and night?
