When watching movies, I always think about how fun is it to live in a fictional world different from reality. Back when I was still an innocent child, I reluctantly visited my mother’s hometown, Caramoan. But once I’d arrived, I was captivated of how simple and beautiful that place is. So I made a story based on my experience, yearning the days I’m blissfully living with my late grandmother. Also mixed in some personal thoughts on how I view the cycle of life and religion. I primarily dedicate this film for my parents.
