In Philippine History, Mabini is known as the “sublime paralytic” for being the brains of the revolution. He served as the first prime minister to Emilio Aguinaldo’s revolutionary government. The accomplished lawyer performed all his revolutionary and governmental functions despite being tied to a chair after losing the use of both his legs due to Polio.

This film has been a hot topic on social media platforms lately due to the good feedback that it received from moviegoers. Its popularity on the internet went far and wide, so much so, that netizens started an “online revolution” of sorts by campaigning for it to stay in the cinemas.
