Eight days before Christmas, Typhoon Sendong ravaged a small city in the northern coastline of the Philippines, burying most of it in water. 8,128 families displaced; almost 5,000 dead; at least a thousand missing, most of them presumed to have been buried alive…. Reports peg infrastructure damage to be worth around 17 million Euros.
Three weeks after, a man is found walking around the city in broad daylight, a dead “baby” in his arms. He wanders around the business district, dogged by locals who wondered, sympathized, empathized.
Following the ghost of his wife, he walks on until he reaches a river and drowns himself.
