The story/play was just amazing and the actors acted like a boss. I have been watching plays since I was in high school, so far this is the best play I have watched. Well, besides from that the content of the story is very interesting. So the play started with Santamaria’s family in Negros Oriental. The Santamria family has 3 sons, the eldest joined the guerilla movement, the youngest to the USAFFE, and the middle son to collaboration with the Japanese. In act 1 scene 1 the Santamarias Carlos and Amanda, their two sons Miguel and Franco and their daughters-in-law Isabel and Cristy-are enjoying New year’s Eve. In act 1 scene 2 the Japanese occupies Dumagute City which made the family terrified. Captain Haroda (Japanese) went to the house of the Santamarias to make an extraordinary demand. In Act 2 scene’s 1, 2, & 3 Farnco, Emilio, Cristy, & Marissa where involved in a crucial part of the story. In act 3 scene’s 1, 2, & 3 it’s the part where I saw my 1st real live kissing scene Hahaha, well no one expected that part to happen. In this part it’s where the brothers lost their brother due to war on because of the different groups they’ve joined. In this part allied forces won. The family rejoices-but things may never be the same again. Now there’s this question in the beginning that kept on ringing in my mind. “Who is a hero and who is a traitor”. Well its up for you to find out, you will need to watch it because its worth watching than telling you what happened in the play.
