Forget subdued. Ako Si Ninoy is a film spectacle that traces the lives of 11 individuals in the contemporary Philippines, and how they relate to the public persona and private character of the late modern-day hero, Benigno "Ninoy" Aquino, Jr. which resonates in our national life. An overseas Filipino worker (OFW), a housewife, a teacher, a journalist, a labor leader, an activist, a doctor, a student, a teen star, a war veteran, and a child hero. Their parallel lives, single and collective, and told in an episodic style, are reflected on the screen, as they weave a tapestry of entwining stories that bear the stuff of heroism and what eventually makes a hero in everyone, just like Ninoy, the guiding thread of the film. But heroes not be dead.
