Isang Harding Papel
Isang Harding Papel tells the story of what it was like during the time of Martial Law where blind-obedience is discipline and discipline means progress. But mostly it is a story about hope - in a country grasped by an authoritarian rule - hope between a mother who was detained for standing up for her beliefs and her young daughter who longs to be with her, learning and understanding the world, in the midst of distress.
