Descriptions:

The time, 1945 Cebu City has just been liberated by the American forces. The Chapel of St. Therese of the Child Jesus in Lahug, built in 1938 by Dr. Virgilio Gonzales and his wife, to fulfill a promise to the Little Flower of Jesus, is in ruins. Only the bell tower, fa├žade (both scarred and pockmarked by shrapnel and bullets) with the statue of St. Therese, the pillars and the tile floor remain of what was once a beautiful chapel.
