The film presents a simple, happy, and innocent life of the youth in the 1980’s amidst the rural landscape to today’s millennials. One of the film’s goals is for millennials to cherish and relive this mystical and enchanted past which they unfortunately did not experience.
The film likewise provides viewers the ultimate sensory experience to savor the famous comfort food of the Ilonggos: the Batsoy.
Most importantly, the film highlights the noble and supreme love of an elder child for his younger sibling which in turn would lead the audience members to reach out and give a much-coveted hug to their sibling.
