Lihis

Set in the 70’s during the darkest hours of Philippine History, we follow the story of two young NPA (New People’s Army, the armed wing of the Communist Party of the Philippines) warriors who find themselves entangled in a web of frustration, despair and victory as they fight not only for democracy but also their love for each other.

Her mother Cecilia was part of a fact-finding mission into a massacre, and Ada’s inquiries bring up her history as a member of the NPA. The other timeline traces the relationship of Ka Felix and Ka Jimmy, two rebels who fall in love, despite the movement’s laws against such a pairing.
