The film centers on the life and legacy of Celine Navarro, a Filipina American woman who was buried alive by her Filipinx immigrant community in California in 1932. Focusing on inter-generational legacies of violence, the film suggests how seeking truth about the past can help survivors heal. The director presents the power of feminist filmmaking as Celine Parreñas Shimizu weaves into narrative the painful loss of her own son, Lakas.
