MAGNIFICO

123mins|2003

Set in a rural town, a couple begins to lose hope and courage when faced with life’s adversities—a daughter who suffers from cerebral palsy, a son who loses his scholarship, and a young boy named Magnifico or “Ikoy,” who is not so good in school. But Ikoy is gifted with a good heart and a huge spirit that allows him to give joy to hopeless people in their community and magically transforms their lives for the better.
