by John Falch
Meet the Reynaldos, a simple country family living on their farm in the 1940s American Philippines. Good luck has bounced their way and the family is climbing out of rural poverty to become successful entrepreneurs. But sweet luck turns bitter when World War II erupts explosively in their backyard. The victorious Japanese arrive as their new masters, bringing with them a new set of rules and other bad surprises. This includes forcing the Reynaldos to be servants in their own house.Â
As seen through the eyes of their youngest son, Pepot, The Yellow Bar delivers a close up view of the almost forgotten history of the Japanese occupation of the Philippines and the horrors of the Battle of Manila, telling the story of a remarkable family that struggles to survive it all through quick thinking, faith, and a pinch of dark humor. Based on a true story.
