It is a great movie. I’m not a fan of Filipino movies but this one got my attention. It has a great story. It shows what happened during the Martial Law. I never thought that it was so cruel. It inspired me a lot because the characters show how they fight for what they believe in. The film also showed that even women have the power to do what a man can do. It really has a story and each characters has their own stories. III. Definition of Terms
