In 1971, a teenager whose life is falling apart determines to discover what actually happened his father wh was murdered 15 years before. Based on a true story, the narrative ultimately shatters the tension between fact and fiction but not before taking the audience on a rollicking journey through the culture wars of the 1960s to today.
In 1941, fear and faith collide when a 21 year old Jesuit missionary from Jersey City awakens to the sound of invading Japanese warplanes over Manila harbor. Thrown into a detention camp for westerners this journey of a meek and faithful spirit is set against the sweep of world events and a lasting tie to the Filipino resistance that sustained and helped liberate him.
