“Si Niño at ang Santo” tells the story of the young boy Niño who gets to talk to the town patron saint, Santo Dionisio. As their town is experiencing a drought, the saint gives Niño miraculous access to water, which the boy immediately tells the townspeople. But the people of Barrio Baleleng are a faithless lot, and their lack of faith deprives them of any access to the water Niño told them about. Because of this, the townspeople madly drive Niño away and even accuse the poor boy of being sent by the devil.
What kind of miracle will make the people of Barrio Baleleng believe in the power and love of God? How will Niño help save the people of his town? Find out in the special Lenten episode of Pidol’s Wonderland this Sunday, April 17, 5:30-6:30pm after Paparazzi on TV5.
