A documentary filmmaker from Manila sets out to cover the Sinulog Festival in Cebu, but gets in over his head when he meets a retired, corrupt politician who is ready to tell all. Mixing both Cebuano and Tagalog dialects (with English subtitles) and having one of the most renowned festivals in the Philippines as a backdrop, the film explores how people deal with deceit and how the Filipino spirit is actually not unlike any of that country's parades.

Parades are a perfect metaphor for our society. Our parades... anywhere in this country... they'are all about dressing up in tribal costumes whose heritage we've lost while praising a god whom we fear more than understand. And this religion we claim is ours... we follow it but don't understand it.
