SYNOPSIS: Foul-mouthed seventy-year-old 'Pagpag' (garbage food) vendor Perla seeks a better life for her orphaned granddaughter (and financial relief for herself) by putting the latter up for adoption. After a number of failed attempts, she decides to prepare Rose with a new audition number to win over the new adoptive gay parents from abroad. Inspired by a 2011 case about a 10-year old child exploited and abused in a Filipino noon-time game show, Pagpag is a meditation on the nature of contemporary.
