Directed by Adolfo Alix Jr.
Philippines, 2007


Jason lives in a slum district of Manila. Jason can drum better than anyone, but he doesn’t have a drum kit. He probably won’t get one either, because his brother makes his girlfriend pregnant and his friend Pablo tends to wave his knife around too much. But Jason carries on drumming in his dreams.
