Filmmaker John Torres embarks on a poignant journey to understand his fractured relationship with his successful father, Rodolfo Torres. As his father’s double life is revealed, Torres looks back on his childhood and confronts his feelings of abandonment and inadequacy. Through his exploration of identity, he weaves together fragments of seemingly unrelated scenes of his life to embrace forgiveness.

The second feature of Filipino director John Torres was awarded a Special Mention in the Southeast Asian Competition of the 2008 Bangkok International Festival and the Grand Jury Prize in the 2007 Cinemanila International Film Festival. It was screened in competition at the 2008 International Film Festival Rotterdam.
