The film is about the controversial death of Andres Bonifacio, Supreme Leader of the activist group, Katipunan, and founder of Philippine Revolution against Spain. It was May 9, 1897, the day that Bonifacio was charged with punishment by death. Rival revolutionaries executed him and his body has never been found.
The film revolves around the desperate and harrowing thirty-day search of Bonifacio’s widow, Gregoria de Jesus, to find Andres' body in the mountains. Despite being sick, hungry, angry, lonely, and nearly mad, she searches for the truth behind her husband’s death.
The film uncovers four versions of Bonifacio’s execution story — General Lazaro Macapagal's, one soldier's, a farmer's and a fortune-teller's. The stories are replete with fact, fiction, trues, lies, and even myths — in Philippine tradition, there are even talks about centaur's blood and Bernardo di Caprio's legend poisoning Bonifacio.
This is because the execution of Bonifacio remains a big debacle in the Filipino people's search for the truth. The truth has never been resolved; the killers are even heralded as national heroes. But not a proper burial was given to Andres Bonifacio. Check out the trailer...
