A coming of age tale about a young Filipino male prostitute. The sweet-natured and seemingly naive twenty year-old Iliac (Coco Martin) struggles to earn a living and win some affection within the seedy confines of a gay massage parlour in Manila. When his alcoholic father dies, Iliac must return to his family in the province of Pampanga for the funeral. His journey, however, is much more than geographical. The film follows Iliac as he attempts to makes sense of his relationships and his conflicting responsibilities to work, family and religion.
