Synopsis

In This Is How Her Home Was Built, Julia, a young woman living in Manila, embarks on a poignant journey to unravel the intricate web of conflicting narratives that shroud the true origins of her beloved home. Reality, lies, and myth merge into a complex mosaic, mirroring the challenge to distinguish fact from fiction in a world saturated with manipulated narratives.

As Julia endeavours to discover a sense of belonging and unveil the true history of her home, she becomes a universal allegory of the struggle to untangle the layers of deception and manipulation that obscure her understanding of historical and contemporary events in the Philippines. With this realisation, she contemplates the profound consequences of disinformation and fake news on young people in society.
