Cemeteries reveal a lot about a place and its people. In the Philippines, most cemeteries possess a community that has given them opportunity to work and live. You will meet some of the people who were born in the Manila North Cemetery and have lived their lives here for decades. They say that living with the dead provides peace, which they cannot obtain living on the streets. And for some, being in the cemetery has helped them believe that life really goes beyond the grave.
