Jaclyn Jose stars as a mother taking her children on a road trip from Cebu to Dumaguete to attend the funeral of their father, whom they barely knew. This sharp, at times wacky road comedy takes odd turns through the personal lives of its characters, none of whom conform to the traditional portrait of the god-fearing Filipino family member. Branded with a uniquely Bisaya sense of humor, the movie has a uniquely off-kilter comedic rhythm. (2016, 90 min)
