Synopsis

Mateo has been searching for his father who left when he was five. His search leads him to Lobo Batangas only to discover that his father is in Dubai. Awaiting his father's return, Mateo works as the caretaker of Lobo's lighthouse. Here he meets Jerome, a gay man from the city. What ensues soon after the meeting is the beginning of his homoerotic journey while Suzet, Mateo's girlfriend, struggles for his love and attention. What begins as a search for one's father evolves into a search for one's self. In the midst of this conservative rural community, will Mateo cross the thin line between being straight and being gay?

From Joselito Altarejos, the director of Censored Dreams and Tale of the Lost Boys, comes a homo-erotic journey of finding one's true self.
