Lapida is a short feature film about Joven, a poor gravedigger who encounters difficulty as he searches for a respectable burial spot for his mother. Joven rents a coffin for the wake but, due to lack of funds, he can only have the coffin within a certain timeframe. Within this time, he must look for a spot to bury his loved one without having to settle for any ordinary pauper's grave. Lapida aims to provide the viewer with a rich, unique, film viewing experience that also addresses relevant issues in Philippine society.
