| review |

Twenty two years have elapsed and the former center of Manilatown is still a gaping hole in downtown San Francisco. What became of the elderly Filipino manongs who fought for their right to live out their lives in the only home they ever knew?

"The film is a blend of cultural history and personal vignettes which dramatically portrays the conflicts between individuals, corporations, and those who must enforce the law."
