Dakip is a little boy who lives with his parents – Day and Ric – inside Camp Delgado, a makeshift prison inside a military camp for both rebels and criminals. Day does her best to shelter the child from the harsh realities of their life. She tells stories about an enchantress named Liway, with songs and imagination to help keep her boy from trauma. However, at the tail end of the Martial Law, her own dark past catches up on her and the lives of the detainees become increasingly difficult. She is confronted with the cruel possibility that the best interest of her child means never seeing her again. This is based on a true story.
Liway is a 2018 Filipino independent film about the experiences of Dakip, a young boy growing up in a prison as the son of anti-Marcos dissident Cecilia Flores-Oebanda, better known as Commander Liway and referred to in the film by the vernacular endearment "Day", during the waning days of the Marcos dictatorship. The film was written and directed by Kip Oebanda based on true events, with Glaiza de Castro playing the film's titular lead.The film was released on August 3, 2018, as part of the 14th Cinemalaya Independent Film Festival, where it received a special jury commendation and the audience choice award in the full-length feature film category.During its run, the film was noted for eliciting strong emotional responses from its audiences. During its Cinemalaya screenings, filmgoers often spontaneously applauded the film during the end credits. In some instances, viewers chanted protest songs which were used in the film that originated during the Marcos era.Along with Benedict Mique's ML, it was one of the two Cinemalaya 2018 films about the martial law, continuing the tradition of 2017's Respeto in light of the 2016 Burial of Ferdinand Marcos and the prominence of his wife Imelda Marcos and his children, Ferdinand Marcos Jr. and Imee Marcos, in Philippine politics.
