The film documented the difficulties faced by the workers of a Catholic figurines factory in the Philippines. Impacted by globalization, the living space and freedom of these workers are threatened by commercial activities, with religion putting moral pressure on the society. After the holy craft is praised by the religious group, a peculiar economy occurs: the believers rely heavily on the crafts, thus the workers are forced to give up their lives to keep up with the demand, for example, relieving pressure via drugs. Nonetheless, until this economy suddenly crashed, people had no choice but to face the problematic reality of religion, capital, and exploitation.
