Storyline

Three young and good-looking brothers live with and support their parents in Manila; they dance at the male Club Exotica and work as "call boys." Joel has a wife and child; he and Dennis are saving money to buy back lost family land. Sonny has dropped out of university and sees dancing as a way to make money for now. Joel has a regular boyfriend as well; Sonny spends time with Michelle, a transvestite; Dennis and his pals steal car radios. When their nanay takes in a homeless youth who is not what he appears to be, a chain of events is set in motion that brings tragedy. Is there any salvation in this late-night world of "macho dancing" and prostitution? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

More than merely a gay movie
2 May 2001 | by Hunky StudSee all my reviews

All the three brothers work at the same gay bar. That is not so hard to believe. But all of them have homosexual lovers. one of the brother loves a transexual, one who is married with a kid also loves another man. That is very so unlikely by statistics.

However, other than that slight problem, this movie is very touching. The homosexual element is not really the main focus.It depicts a general working class family's daily life. > There are not many movies that portray working families. So it is a movie well done.
