by Ramon MES DE GUZMAN

DC_balikbayan_box01

Three boys grow up together in a small village. Their favorite place to spend time is the “Betamax House,” an improvised cinema, located in a modest apartment block, where the owner shows pirated copies of popular Hollywood movies. But the country idyll is clouded by social problems. The poverty of the area leads not only to petty theft and emigration, but in the end it sets off a series of crimes.
