 SYNOPSIS 

Divine Factory is a city factory in Metro Manila. Built as a labyrinth with multiple levels and buildings, it offers unsafe handcraft jobs to self-employed workers. There, the outcasts of the Filipino society fill their lungs with chemicals. Chabi and Maja, a lesbian couple with an 8 year-old son try to finance their new house. Chelsea and Rhea, two joyful lady-boys, deemed unlawful as online-sex-employees by the government, have become miniature painting experts. Their religious figurines will soon be bought, blessed and worshiped by Christians all over the world.
