Pink Halo-Halo -- Natoy (Paolo Constantino) is just like any other child. He finds joy and excitement in the simplest of things -- especially in eating halo-halo filled with pink gelatin and red tapioca at the local halo-halo store owned by his godmother, Bing (Dexter Doria); and playing with his uncle, Mating (Mark Fabillar).
Things change suddenly when, as he and his mother Sonia (Angeli Bayani) are watching television, a news report about the ongoing war in Mindanao, the southern-most part of the Philippines, shows footage of a badly wounded soldier waiting for rescue. That soldier -- almost bleeding to death, is his father, Corporal Lino Bolante (Allen Dizon).
The story shows how wars rob a child of his innocence.

A heart-warming film by Heather E. Connell, who spent several years documenting the struggles of the street and garbage dump children of Cambodia. She brings the film to life through the sights and sounds of Phnom Pehn and gives the film its soul through the voices of these children as they share stories of their lives and their dreams for the future. They are the first generation of children born to survivors of the Khmer Rouge and have learned to survive in an economy and society struggling to rebuild itself.
