Manila, July 7, 2009. As Michael Jackson’s televised funeral plays throughout The Philippines, despite terrorist attacks in the south, an estranged son purchases a child who can drink and smoke, to impress his father. However, when the patriarch and his friends embrace the new child as one of their own, the question presents itself: what determines who is worthier of attention?
