Religious icons guard the front door of 84 year old, Remy Fernandez, whose youngest son, Juan, was killed by masked gunmen in his home while preparing dinner. They came through this door. Remy had urged him to go into hiding but Juan insisted on preparing a spaghetti dinner on one of his daughter's birthday. Juan's wife is in prison on drug charges. So, Remy is left with the task of raising 7 grandchildren in this impoverished community on the fringes of a city dump in Payatas. Metro Manila, Philippines.
