    • Synopsis
    • When Iyay learns that Jesus, her estranged husband, has died, she tells her children that they are going on a trip – an inter-island road trip smack in the middle of the Philippines, to be exact. No ifs or buts about it – they are attending their father’s funeral. Her children – Hubert, who has Down Syndrome; Jude, a lovesick trans man; and Jay, who is living the bum life – join her with varying degrees of reluctance as she drives them in her extra-mini minivan. Through one unplanned detour after another, the family comes closer to confronting the past and figuring out how to simply enjoy the ride toward an uncertain future.
