Description

His real name is Toshio Manahan, but everyone calls him Japino because he's half-Japanese half-Filipino. Japino reveals the troubling world adolescence we are all familiar with, in a most foreign atmosphere of local guerrilla warfare and a state run by corrupt policemen, in Garsaponga, a rural village in the tropical mountains of the Philippines.
