Synopsis

"Together with her husband Ferdinand, Imelda Marcos stockpiled assets worth an estimated $5-10 billion from the Filipino people – not to mention that notorious wardrobe-full of shoes. Yet despite that breathtaking corruption and the brutality of Marcos’ martial law-imposing regime, Imelda and her son Bongbong, who is bidding for the vice-presidency, are on the comeback trail.

An acute study of the psychology of power and a portrait of someone with an incredible, almost inviolable sense of entitlement ICO"
