Sa Pusod ng Dagat
In a remote fishing island in the 1950’s, Pepito grows up learning the trade of his mother, Rosa, the only midwife capable of delivering the newborn babies of their community. At first, the young son doesn’t mind the unusual arrangement, but as he grows older, he begins to resist the role traditionally meant only for women.
In time, Pepito’s coming of age intersects with the lives of the other islanders, whose beliefs and struggles become critical factors in his maturity. Eventually, embarrassment and prejudices are overcome by acceptance and love between mother and son.
