    A portrait of a family of Overseas Filipino Workers in their home in Manila.

    Prisco Escobal, their breadwinner, worked in Saudi Arabia for almost three decades.

    Today, at 65, Prisco is back home with his wife, sharing stories about the days when they were apart, their children, and their idea of an ideal family.

    It is now their four children who are away from home, following their father’s footsteps of working outside the islands of our country in hopes of having a better life.
