Shot in the Philippines over an eight-month period in 1987, this work chronicles three points of a political triangle: the legal left, represented by Kummander Dante, founder of the rebel army and a candidate for the Senate; the illegal armed revolution, as explored through rebel priest Father Navaro, member of the communist New People's Army; and the enemy that threatens both groups, the armed, reactionary right. Radio disc jockey Jun Pala is the voice of the right's anti-communist crusade. This work poses the key question facing the revolutionaries and the Philippino left: should the people's movement continue the guerilla war, or do they dare enter legal politics and reveal the hidden faces of a revolution?
