LORENZO is a contemporary rock opera about a condemned Filipino awaiting execution in the Middle East for having murdered his employer. A reporter from Manila is sent there to cover the case. She finds him in prison planning out a theater production based on the life of the first Filipino saint, San Lorenzo Ruiz. The condemned Pinoy, who had once been active in theater groups in Manila, is writing this play to thank the saint for giving his life a 180-degree turn.
