A seldom-seen women's film from the Philippines, this 1976 feature was the first film work of TV director Lupita A. Concio. The story is centered on a family of Filipinos living near an American air base; the eldest daughter (Nora Aunor) dreams of becoming a nurse and emigrating to the U.S., her boyfriend plans to join the American navy, and her mother works at the base's PX. But the family's identification with America is shattered when the brother is shot by a base guard, who claims he mistook the boy for a wild boar.
