When Iyay learns that Jesus, her estranged husband, has died, she tells her children that they are going on a trip to attend his funeral—an inter-island road trip smack in the middle of the Philippines, to be exact. Her children—Hubert, who has Down Syndrome; Jude, a lovesick trans man; and the destitute Jay—join her with varying degrees of reluctance for the drive across the country in her extra-mini minivan.
The seemingly solemn journey quickly implodes into a series of hysterical, madcap misadventures. 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.
Director Victor Villanueva captures a lovingly unique microcosm of familial discord, loyalty and affection, all packed tightly into that extra-mini minivan.
