  • Year2019
  • Duration74 min

A founding member of the Communist Party of the Philippines is in the final days of his life when his son discovers his role in the dark period of the Party’s history.
Facing history in cinema is a work of doubt, of fragility and loss. This film is made of attempts, movements and silences, and the radical assumption of human contradiction as a foundational element of every country’s history.
