As a personal story about the Filipino experience at the St. Louis World's Fair of 1904, the film unfolds from the perspective of two characters—a Filipino immigrant in America and an lgorot warrior held captive at the Fair. The film dramatically exposes the seminal contours of ethnic identity and experience in America, providing an innovative investigation of history, memory and the spectacle of the ‘other’ in turn-of-the-century America.
