In a rural area of the Philippines, a father forces his daughter into prostitution. Somewhere else, two men are embarked on a quest for a buried treasure. “As no other filmmaker, Lav Diaz is involved with the suffering of the people of the Philippines, with its history of colonialism, corruption and poverty. A philosophical drama about the psychological effects of injustice and arbitrariness” (Gertjan Zuilhof, programmer, International Film Festival Rotterdam).
Please note that the film will be shown without intermission.
