Sergio’s rebellious wife has left the family for a better life, taking with her their youngest son, Eddie. Sergio is determined to get Eddie back but with no money and no real home -- they live in a Manila cemetery mausoleam -- what are his chances? His only source of income is his dogs, who he has trained to do tricks in the streets of Manila.
