The political hopefuls take to the streets of the Philippines and make themselves exceedingly visible as directors S. Leo Chiang and Johnny Symons immerse the audience in the battle for rights and acceptance. This rousing documentary reaches beyond just personal narratives, following the historic struggle of the Ladlad party in its attempt to bring its voters out of the shadows to fight for representation.
