In Manila, pre-WW II, two spinster sisters, Candida and Paula, are gifted with a bewildering portrait by their father, Don Lorenzo, a renowned but recluse painter. The sisters reject the attention the portrait receives until sly vaudeville piano player Tony tells he knows an American who is willing to buy it for a high price. Tired of being poor, Candida schemes to sell the portrait with naive Paula as bait. The musical is based on Nick Joaquin’s play A Portrait of the Artist as Filipino.
* The film based on the three-act play A Portrait of the Artist as Filipino by Nick Joaquin, National Artist for Literature, also won Best Actress for Joanna Ampil, Gatpuno Antonio J. Villegas Cultural Award, Best Production Design, and Best Musical Score.
