Synopsis
The dark days of Philippines’ history under dictator Ferdinand Marcos was also the dark days in the history of Philippine Press. Most, if not all media groups, were controlled by the state. The documentary brings to the fore the struggles of Jose “Joe” Burgos Jr., with his wife Edita, and a team of city college editors who braved risks and dangers to publish and expose real news.
