Following the Pineda family works a summary film house in a city in the region which shows dated hot twofold component films. The family has relocated to the old structure also. The matron Nanay Flor, her girl Nayda, directed by Brillante Mendoza, child in-regulation Lando and embraced little girl Gem alternate monitoring the ticket office and the container. Her nephews Alan and Ronald are the bulletin painter and a great Showtimes review projectionist individually.

Nanay Flor had documented a polygamy body of evidence against her alienated spouse and is going to the trial today when, following various years, the choice will be at last given over. It is inside this setting that the story unfurls. As the other individuals approach their day to day exercises, we get a brief look at how they endure and manage each other’s wrongdoings and indecencies — social, monetary or sexual.

Alan, who is monetarily caught off guard for conjugal obligation, feels abused by his pregnant sweetheart’s interest of marriage. Nayda, who entered marriage out of custom, is conflicted between conjugal loyalty and her equivocal fascination towards YouTube TV Series on DVD and her cousin Ronald. Nanay Flor, who loses the case, feels sold out by the court judge as well as by her child who affirmed for his dad.

Engrossed with their own evil spirits, the family is oblivious that inside the cinema, one more sort of business is happening between the “serbis” young men (male whores) and the gay benefactors.

A more distant family runs this weak old theater, lives in it, as well, and is in any event, raising a charming little child. The films on the screen are hetero, yet no one is watching. The dull seats and the brilliant passages and flights of stairs are home to gay hawkers and their customer base, everyone knows the weekend recommendation, no one wants to think about it, a significant number of them appear to be sitting around idly for something to ease their fatigue. There is some appreciation when a goat gets free inside the theater.

The movie closes with an inquisitive scene: Nayda (Jaclyn Jose) washes, dresses and applies lipstick before a mirror, while telling her appearance, “I love you.” Later, there is a scene of her mom applying lipstick in anticipation of her court appearance. Given the dingy environmental elements, there is a contacting thing about these two ladies setting up their countenances to confront the world valiantly.
