The once illustrious Lopez-Aranda family has faded. Celia, once the darlings of Philippine opera, and her brother Gaspar, a distinguished ex-congressman, lack the shrewdness to maintain their once elegant status. The younger generation of the Lopez-Aranda family, children of Celia and Gaspar, clash in a confrontation that reveals their weaknesses and their hopeless ideals. Seen from the perspective of Anthony, the young grandson of Celia, the film is a social commentary on the slow decay of the family and the revelations that shatter the ties that once bound them together.
