JR, Charlene, Margarita and Robert are half American; they are among the many children born to U.S. servicemen who were stationed on military bases in the Philippines until 1992. Like most Filipino Amerasians, they were left behind by their biological fathers and largely forgotten. Over the course of two years, they delve into the psychological and social consequences of the U.S. military presence and its legacy. Watch preview below.
