Gibson Bonifacio stopped speaking as a child. He is now twenty years old, returning to Manila from his studies abroad, his first visit home in three years. He finds his family trying to keep it together, his mother still hurting from a tragic loss in the past. In the backdrop of the vibrant local music scene, his childhood best friend reaches out to him, and he finds a chance at his first real romantic relationship. Amidst the holidays, Gibson reconsiders and redefines his relationships with his family, his friends, and with himself.
I finally saw it! This was the sole film I wanted to see at this year’s Cinemalaya Festival, I wanted to see it for the music part. It was so hyped that I never got to see it during the festival, giving me more reason to catch it now that it was shown in major cinemas.
They were right, the film was good. It may not be the best for me, but there were several high points in the film that amused me. And it stars the Roco twins, one of which is my dreamboat when I was younger. 😉
