Four friends in 1990s Manila: Paolo, Mimaw, Kachi, and Gilligan – go on a journey of self- discovery together as they play games and wrestle with new dilemmas. A series of earthquakes leading up to Mt. Pinatubo’s historic volcanic eruption has been causing blackouts across the country, preventing the kids from playing their usual escape: video games. After roaming the streets and getting beaten up the three boys decide on traditional circumcision as the ultimate answer to their problems while Mimaw pines for Paolo who is in love with a popular girl. Raya Martin’s debut feature is a colorful tapestry of adolescent angst and retro yearnings that is a true delight.
