About the Film:

Directed by Emmanuel Quindo Palo, Philippines, 2012, 105 mins

When Paulino Mungcal (Coco Martin) and his co-worker in a lahar-filled quarry unexpectedly dig up the remains of his two-year-old daughter Marikit, they discover that she shows no signs of decay. Could this be a miracle, and could she—despite death—cure the sick? Inspired by whatever healing power the deceased child may have, Paulino asks the church to declare her a saint. But how, when her resurgence stirs up emotions buried by time, and shores up questions about pure love, guilt, sin and salvation?
