An intimate examination of the Marcos family's improbable return to power in the Philippines, centering on the indomitable character of Imelda Marcos - exploring the disturbing legacy of the Marcos regime and chronicles Imelda's present-day push to help her son, Bongbong, win the vice-presidency. In an age when fake news manipulates elections, Imelda confidently rewrites her family's history of corruption, replacing it with a narrative of a matriarch's extravagant love for her country.

'It's a documentary that starts as a nonfiction portrait and ends as a political horror movie' - David Fear, Rolling Stone
