Cecilia (Gina Alajar) is an actress from the Philippines who for 13 years has lived in New York City. She meets photojournalist Steve (Edward Swan) when he is assigned to do a magazine article on Filipinos who reside in New York. After Cecilia receives word that her dissident ex-husband Buddy has been killed by military police, Steve accompanies her to the Philippines to search for her missing daughter Layla. The feature accurately captures the political transition of the oppressive regime of Ferdinand Marcos to the government led by Cory Aquino, whose soldiers were responsible for Buddy's death.
