On July 7, 2009, Michael Jackson’s funeral captures the attention of an entire nation when it broadcasts throughout The Philippines. That same day, Boy Manatad buys a “son” who can drink and smoke to impress his hyper-masculine father, Rodrigo. However, when Rodrigo and his friends take to the child as one their own, Boy is forced to come to terms with his own insecurities…and Michael Jackson.

In English and Tagalog with English subtitles. 

Q&A with director Andrew Stephen Lee to follow Friday’s screening.
