Pinoy Sunday

Wi Ding Ho

Sunday is precious.

In Taipei’s Little Philippines, populated by migrant workers that put in six-day-weeks, Sunday is priceless. Sunday is filled with little diversions and simple pleasures – including the discovery of an abandoned, brand new couch on this particular Sunday… For Filipino migrant workers Manuel and Dado, returning to their dormitory with this prize would be a heroic feat – if they can make it before curfew! Miles away from home and with no means of transportation, the scene is set for this absurdist road movie where “irrational hope” and the “demons of cold, hard rationale” mutate, and one is soon indistinguishable from the other!
