PCN 2018: Dalawang Dalaga

This year’s PCN focuses on the topics of immigration and mental health. “Dalawang Dalaga” tells the story of Aiza, who immigrates to the United States from the Philippines at the age of twenty to live with her estranged father, Ed, who had to leave Aiza behind when he moved to the US. Now, Aiza must acculturate to life in the US, life with Ed and his wife and children, and life as a college student. She takes the time adjusting to her new life with guidance from her half-sister, Sam, but things get complicated when Ed suggests that the girls host a joint debut.
