Synopsis

Filipinos and Japanese came from the same origin 300 years ago and the proof is many tribes in the Philippines still wear Fundochi, the costume for Sumo wrestlers. This is just for laughs, but the film does observe from a cultural point of view, and shows us the post-colonized aesthetics.
