After witnessing the death of her mother, Pampa Kampana becomes a vessel for her namesake, the goddess Pampa, who begins to speak out of the girl's mouth. The goddess tells Pampa Kampana that she will be instrumental in the rise of a great city called Bisnaga - "victory city." Over the next 250 years, Pampa Kampana's life becomes deeply interwoven with Bisnaga's. Whispering Bisnaga and its citizens into existence, Pampa Kampana attempts to make good on the task that the goddess set for her: to give women equal agency in a patriarchal world. As years pass, the very fabric of Bisnaga becomes an ever more complex tapestry - with Pampa Kampana at its center.
