About the Book

The arrival of a stranger in the poorest community in Manila brings the possibility of danger and threats from the authorities and the money people, but despite this, he is received into their lives as a visitor—a man without a name and a past with unexplained consequences. Although he remains an enigma throughout his stay in the village, he touches all their lives in unexpected ways, bringing hope and sorrow in equal measure.
