Lies + Lies = Truth
RYAN PASTOR knows this by heart. As a small time filmmaker, he knows how sound and images can be manipulated to say anything. And heâ€™s tired of the liesâ€”the lies at work, in his relationships, the lies one must keep in society just to exist. On a whim, he decides to go to Cebu to document the Sinulog festival. There he stumbles upon a truth he didnâ€™t ask for and is reluctant to touch. One of his subjects, LITO CALISO, a former politician who may or may not be dying, decides to confess his sinsâ€”all the crimes he committed while in officeâ€”before Ryanâ€™s camera.
What follows is a story of revelations and bitter truths, of buried secrets and sweet lies. CONFESSIONAL takes you to the heart of a criminal...or an honest man.
