Acclaimed Filipino director Auraeus Solito brings a dreamy romanticism to this tale about a budding teenage poet (Aeious Asin) who sells his comic book collection so he can afford to spend New Year's Eve with Aries (Aries Pena), a handsome male dancer. Portraying the night of passion -- and the connection between the pair -- as a life-changing experience for the young man, the film is part romance and part sociopolitical commentary.
