A production that aims to capture reality, 'Buwis buhay' is a documented narrative of 6 'taong grasas' who wandered around a place they were never seen before. As we all expect, rejection and continuous bashing would welcome these 6 unfamiliar people trying to shake this community by going into crowded places. But, what if they speak in English, they talk sense, they have money, they know their rights, they smell good (but they are greasy)? would you talk to them? would you accept them if they were more than how they looked like? are you aware of the current issues more than they do? Poverty is everywhere, and these wanderers will embody its irony. These "taong grasas" will disrupt the 'Aphrodite' and Narcissus' in the minds of people, and will show us how to live life to its fullest, and risk it just to survive.

a documented reality on poverty, beauty, and fun.

live life, risk life.
