Balitok (Ilocano term for GOLD) captures a slice of life and reality of indigenous tribes (Kalanguya and Kankanaey) practicing artisanal or small-scale mining in the province of Nueva Vizcaya as their means of economic survival. The lush, mountainous, and mineral-rich province is one of the 23-28 Mining Priority Sites of The Philippine government. The province alone is threatened by thirty-two (32) mining tenements / applications and home to the two approved Financial Technical Assistance Agreement (FTAA) mining permit in the Municipalities of Kasibu and Quezon.

The documentary follows the laborious stages of mining in a cinema verite style (from extracting the ore, transporting, milling, panning, separating pyrite and gold up to the heating process) from the point of view of Ongan, a 13 year old small-scale miner, and Mona, an artisanal miner since the 1960s.

The documentary serves as an eye-opener for the viewers as they peek into the world of artisanal and small-scale miners to get a grasp of the whole mining issue in the Philippines.
