Heartbreaking Story "LOLA" 2009 (lola means grandmother in tagalog)....written by Pusan International Film Festival
A grandson stabbed to death for a cell phone; the killer also a grandson. These grandmothers lead very hard, rough lives: one lola trying to find cash for a funeral, while the other is doing all she can to raise cash to free her apo (grandchild/grandson/grand daughter- gender neutral world).
Realistic look at the lives of those who barely get by, and insight into the Filipino Culture in the Philippines.
A moving and beautiful film.
