This looks like a very interesting film. And I’m a sucker for works that feature precocious kids.

Toto, a very outspoken, highly opinionated eight-year-old born with a cleft lip and an open palate, sets off to join his school’s Creative Declamation Competition – a contest of narrative drama and eloquence set on the very high-profiled Philippines’ National Language Week celebration. Speech impediment or not, Toto, armed with iron-clad determination and a desire to be treated like everyone else – no more, no less, takes on the challenge with the help of his lovelorn mother Glenda, an emotional bully [Badong] and a stray, deaf boy [Ogoy] from his neighborhood.
Damn damn damn. It looks like I will ask Bern to delay our beach outing again.
