Synopsis

Pepe, pria 68 tahun yang sering meniru legenda rock Filipina, hidup sendiri pada batas antara kenyataan, imajinasi, dan hal-hal mistis. Suatu hari, ia akhirnya mendapat kesempatan untuk menjadi penampil pembuka dalam konser band rock legendaris tersebut, tetapi ia harus melakukan hal yang belum pernah dilakukan baik olehnya maupun oleh band tersebut—menulis lagu cinta.

Pepe, a 68 year old impersonator of a Filipino rock legend, lives alone on the borders of reality, imagination, and mysticism. One day, he is finally given the chance to open the rock legend’s concert but he must do something neither of them has done before—write a love song.
