A young gay Filipino-Canadian artist, Jay Cabalu along with his filmmaker sister Joella travel from Vancouver, Canada to California and the Philippines to meet their other queer relatives. While Jay creates a new collage art work in his studio, he reflects on his journey and its impact on his struggle with being gay and Roman Catholic.
It Runs in the Family is an intimate exploration on acceptance and what the modern queer family can be in the Filipino diaspora.
