The Dragon In The Clouds

It is 1898, and the Revolution has arrived in Cebu. Caught between the loyalists and separatists, orphaned Lannang Hun Liong forms an unlikely friendship with insular lieutenant Jaime as they attempt to escape the violence raging across the country, though war isn’t the only horror following them. The film poses two questions on cultural identity: who is a Filipino, and who can determine what that means?
