A disposed facemask turns into a humanoid and starts an adventure looking for its previous owner.
After getting disposed of, a facemask starts to turn into a humanoid figure. It journeys into looking for its previous owner, but finds him already with a new and better face mask. It gets heartbroken then wanders around different places in Manila, and eventually finds another similar looking facemask figure.
