Filipino journalist Atom Araullo has reported from some of the most extreme corners of the Philippines. This time, he heads out to find a nation going through extraordinary change.

In each episode, Atom navigates the complex topics of faith, gun culture, land, and women in the Duterte era - by going deep into the worlds of those driving and living with the political, social and cultural upheavals in his country.
