Sa Tahanan ng Aking Ama narrates the consequences of the Second World War to the political bourgeoisie family of Carlos Santamaria as his son, Miguel, joins the guerilla movement and the other, Franco, becomes a collaborator by becoming the governor of the Negros local puppet government. Conflicts ensue as the family becomes trapped in societal norms and definitions of heroism, and the question pervades on who the real hero is. The play illustrates how the affairs of the most basic societal unit, the family, reflects and affects the more political and public sphere.
